Movements inspired by movements in the Arab world. It is "an ode to movements striving to reclaim their dignity and sovereignty from their keepers," according to filmmaker Justin Mashouf. He draws on the energy and emotion from the uprisings in the Middle East and North Africa.

"It's hard to not be inspired by the movements that are happening in the Middle East and North Africa, particularly Tunisia and Egypt. They accomplished something that has not only impacted their own futures but inspired everyone in the region to do the same for themselves," Mashouf says.

"As an artist and a dancer, Spring Movements is my most sincere expression of solidarity with the people."
