“We don't need a big stage to make big statements. From barely three square-meters, we are confronted with questions about identity, tolerance, and stereotypes. An outstanding poem with an extraordinary linguistic quality, delivered from a female perspective fueled by indignation.
The combination of cinematic realization and technical efficiency wrapped around a minimalistic setting, yet with vibrant images, captivate the viewer while triggering thoughts on gender, femininity, physical disability, and freedom of expression. This film challenges the traditional female role in a patriarchal world.
A woman boldly confronts the audacity of role assignment. A highly political film. A self-liberation.”
