Review
Synopsis: "Reincarnation" is a poetic documentary on one of the greatest American artists Isadora Duncan living through her followers at the present time. Mysteriously, after over the century passed from the time she lived, Isadora imposes her art and philosophy on contemporary artists who are compelled to keep doing her movement and preserve her choreography, though it seems to be quite outdated. One of the offspring of Isadora, one of her reincarnations is the founder and artistic director of "Isadora Duncan Dance Foundation" Lori Belilove. Through Lori's life and work, through the art of her students and company members, through the lines of a theatrical play conceived by Lori, the image and entire persona of Isadora Duncan comes alive.
