Hand to Hand

A Documentary by Tamás Wormser

A baby’s grasp, a dancer’s gesture, an athlete’s grip, a craftsman’s touch: hands shape our world. A sensuous visual odyssey following our ever-moving hands, Hand to Hand is a poetic celebration of our quintessential tool. The film focuses on action rather than beliefs, on unity as opposed to separation, observing humanity as an entity with many hands. When director Tamás Wormser was asked how he would touch a vast audience from around the world, he did not hesitate: with hands. The fruit of Wormser’s long-time passion for hands, Hand to Hand is a cultural and visual odyssey that was made with 66 people and filmed in just three days.
