»Turning«, based on a critically acclaimed tour of Europe by Antony and Charles Atlas, is a music documentary that explores the heart of that performance. Through its synthesis of Antony´s songs and unfurling video portraiture of the 13 remarkable women who performed on stage, »Turning« creates an intimate and cinematic experience exploring themes of identity, transcendence and the revelation of essence.
