Poland / 2020 / animated / 6' / National Competition

A glance into the mirror encourages a young woman to gradually discover her carnality. She starts with uncertainty and distance to continue with increasing courage and interest. The meeting with her own reflection enables her to explore her own desires with increasing courage, but the bolder are the woman’s gestures, the subtler the animation. An erotic game employing visual understatement, body fragments and blurred contours begins. In this sensual exploration of the female body where black and white are clashed with an array of colours a lot is left to the viewer’s imagination.
