synopsis: a story of abuse through the thoughts of a woman as she does her make-up
concept: the film is in reverse play, so the acting had to be in reverse too. The woman seems to be making up but gradually she uncovers the wounds on her face, which were prepared in advance by the make-up artist, and the actress’s movements had to be organized in order not to mix make-up and wounds. The emotional reactions were studied in reverse too in order to coincide with the voice-over.
