dir. Anita Kwiatkowska-Naqvi / Poland 2012 / 6’
subtitles: Polish and English

Film description

The body of a woman, fragile and alluring, has stopped belonging exclusively to her and is slowly changing into the body of a mother. Someone else lives inside, who dictated his/her own conditions, taking up more space, not caring at all that the woman is feeling more claustrophobic in her own skin. A plasticised animation full of life and emotion about the stages of life and the dramatic changes a woman undergoes.
