American figure skater Sasha Cohen, currently a student at Columbia University, takes a moment out of her busy schedule to discuss the seclusion and transformative moment that she cherishes when hitting the ice. Director Jake Sumner collaborated with stylist Emily Barnes on the film, presenting Cohen clad in Nina Ricci as she spins and glides while contemplating the way music can influence her performance. “When we met, she told me that she tried to become part of the music to deal with the pressure and we thought this could be an interesting focus,” explains Sumner. “When you see her perform, its like watching something super human.”
