Gita Galina in “I’m Here For You”
August 19, 2022
Dancer Gita Galina stars in South African filmmaker, photographer and musician Caroline Mackintosh’s emotional film for her song “I’m Here For You.” Mackintosh produced it after the passing of her mother as a reminder of comfort during times of vulnerability and struggle. “It is a tribute to the power of standing by yourself, with the knowledge that you are never alone,” says Mackintosh. Filmed on the shores of South Africa, Galina portrays Mackintosh’s pain in a raw, unrestrained way—demonstrating the powerful and therapeutic way dance can express grief. “I’m Here For You” is presented by NOWNESS, a global video channel sharing content on art, music and more.
