Cat Velez - 11th June 2015

Holly Blakey follows up her last promo for Gwilym Gold's Triumph with something equally intense and unexpected in the form of Holding On by Grammy Award-winning Tourist.

Tracking the relationship between lovers as they move between intimacy and dramatic intensity, the film beautifully displays how Holly is developing from talented choreographer, into a director in her own right.
