Sinopsis por Julia Amigo

Los pechos de una mujer están cargados de simbolismos y deseos. Asfixiados por un aluvión de expectativas sociales, los pechos de la protagonista mutan, se arrugan, desaparecen, son observados y manoseados, mientras ella asiste curiosa a cada nueva situación. Llena de ingenio y conmovedora, la historia deja un poso de realismo que mezcla en equilibrio ansiedades y miedos con oportunidades y resistencias.

Con una animación magnética, el corto bucea en muchos temas inherentes al imaginario sociocultural de las tetas de las mujeres: censuradas, dadoras de alimento, sexualizadas, pero también fuente de placer y pedazos exquisitamente sensibles de la anatomía, la narración va escalando en su ritmo hasta alcanzar un clímax calmo, no por ello menos sorprendente. Dirigido por Marie Valade, la mirada femenina al propio cuerpo permite un acercamiento al tema, sin velos ni dulcificaciones, nacido de la experiencia en carne viva y de la confusión que a veces sentimos todas mientras devenimos mujeres.

The breasts of a woman are loaded with symbolism and desires. Suffocated by a barrage of social expectations, the protagonist's breasts mutate, wrinkle, disappear, are observed and groped, while she curiously attends each new situation. Wit and poignant, the story leaves a trace of realism that balances anxieties and fears with opportunities and resistance.

 

Using magnetic animation, the short dives into many themes inherent to the sociocultural imaginary of women's boobs: censored, food-giving, sexualized, but also a source of pleasure and exquisitely sensitive pieces of the anatomy, the narration escalates in its rhythm until reaching a calm climax, nevertheless surprising. Directed by Marie Valade, the feminine gaze on one's own body allows an approach to the subject, unveiled, born of raw experience and the confusion that we all feel as we become women.
