Abstract

Dance films come in several genres, including: experimental, narrative, and documentary. Suprapto Suryodarmo’s Silent Path is a documentary film that uses body movements as the narrative language to convey the messages or feelings in the film. Made with a performative approach (mode), this documentary tells the story of Suprapto Suryodarmo's daily life, of how he lives it and his efforts in responding to his environment through meditative movements as a form of self-approach to the Creator. The results of this film production are expected to add to the scientific repertoire in the area of documentary and dance films. After that, people will begin to learn values in behaving in life, such as politeness, manners, tolerance, and things that are culturally acceptable in the society, a stage which Suprapto refers as solah.
