Filming, documenting one’s own and others’ practices, is fundamentally important in calisthenics/street workout, and I will address this in two short movies.
This first one documents a professional documenter. Rain Bennett is currently producing the documentary “Raise Up: The World is Our Gym” about the “bar movement.” Exchanging with Rain has been very enriching for me. After all, we’re both documenters of this new “culture” that is unfolding in front of our eyes. We just use different techniques to “tell our story,” a phrase he often uses, which I like very much.
In this interview, Rain talks about his project, the way he “felt in love” with this movement, the feedback he’s received so far, and his “target audience.”
