Departures tells the story of Giralda, an undertaker who accompanies deceased human beings into their afterlife. Interpreted with the means of Spanish flamenco dance and music, and set at an old East German ship canal lift, the film creates an associative fusion between Northern and Southern Europe, movement and silence, farewell and eternity.

Cinedans is an organization that fosters and develops dance and film /new media. The four main pillars of the organization are Cinedans FEST, WEB, TOUR and LAB. Cinedans FEST is unique in the Netherlands and in the world, celebrating dance film as genre and art form. Cinedans sees the ideal dance film as a true synthesis between the media of dance and cinematography. At Cinedans FEST the emphasis lies on choreographies which are created specifically for the camera and on special film adaptations of existing dance performances. Cinedans FEST also features a selection of special documentaries and retrospectives. Approximately 130 films from all over the world are screened each year.
