Through the vision of three dancers, linking the body with the mind, Why We Fight? sets out to understand the violence in the world, and within ourselves. Using various types of imagery and a range of visual metaphors, the film analyses social change, the lack of emotional processing, and the power of humanity, which always seems balanced between creating something spectacularly beautiful and something horribly cruel.
