SYNOPSIS

A short film is composed by sequences that are constructed on the principle of montage and synchronised with sound that is played from a separate source (tape-recorder). The geometric constructions are alternated with images of the body (of the artist) that transforms itself and takes on different roles. Performativity and close-ups of the face, masking and eroticism, are predominant features of the film. (Source: DIVA)
