Spanish premiere


A self-portrait. We see the filmmaker and, also, she makes us see how she sees. A woman who tells us of her time in hospitals and clinics and, also, without naming it, her mental illness. She tells us about looking at her hands and not seeing them because they have become transparent. About not being able to have any certainty regarding the outside world or her own existence. She talks of solitude but also of family and home, of the pain felt but also of the pain caused. She talks of loving remarks which are also terrible remarks. She talks about all of this and, at the end, despite the shortness of the film, we have learned a lot about this filmmaker. But as well as talking to us, she makes us see and she makes us feel. She makes us see to make us feel better. She gives shape to what she is and to the reality in which she lives. To share an uncertain reality, she creates an uncertain, changing form. This short film, in order to make us feel something that is so vast and boundless, is full of ideas, fragments of life, details, formal inventions, images in black and white and images in colour, drawings, animated painting, images recorded with a mobile phone, images that appear within the image, realistic images, fantastic images. This is the self-portrait of a woman who can say: “How will the world change the next time I open my eyes?”
