Developed from of an intimate encounter with a wounded heron, this dark underworld unfolded through dense and controlled movements to the pulsing sounds of cars passing on the highway.

Rising and looking for light, she manages to jump over the bridge only to find herself in a new limbo, by the side of the highway.

Screening in: Sapodilla Shorts
