film by Eduardo Menz
The vulnerability of alienated individuals who desperately desire to be noticed and crave for genuine human connection is exposed in rather strange scenes on the edge between intimacy and voyeurish fantasies. The fixations and the consequences of our pursuit of instant communication and popular culture are framed in a panorama of six unrelated characters as their daily obsessions, desires and identities capture a sense of things slowly slipping out of control.
