Spanish premiere


An artist is preparing her first solo exhibition. She produces a short film for the occasion. A film which reflects on where she is and also where she comes from. A film made of photos and cartoons. Mostly of photos. Stills. And, between the stills, almost always, a black screen. A film made in part, almost without us realising it, with no images. A discontinuous film. A film made of discontinuities and about discontinuities. The discontinuity between the artist's present and past. Between her family and herself. Between her and herself. Between what was her social class and what is now her class. Between what she wants to speak about and what she can speak about. Between her childhood in a village dreaming of becoming an athlete or designing fashion to escape from there, and her present as an artist who came out of there. Between what she feels (shame, anxiety, irritation) and what she thinks she ought to feel (indignation, anger). The artist's narration, soft, with a unique rhythm, seeks, perhaps, to express what cannot be found in the images, continuities between worlds, between past and present. It seeks a meaning or, at least, some meanings. Meaning is, perhaps, a form of continuity, something that makes it possible to move from one image to another, to jump over the discontinuity that separates them. But perhaps there are no meanings or solutions in this film. Perhaps it is just personal, made of details, fragments, vulnerabilities, contradictions, a story.
