Corteza

Corteza

Lilia is 71 years old and Alzheimer’s disease has transformed her mind and body. Her world is full of noises and whispers. Sometimes thoughts come out from her mouth and reveal a disturbed reality.
Bark is a short film that describes this woman’s bath routine. Submerged in a bathtub, Lilia lets her body lie there, while an imposing black woman is in charge of rinse her, rub her…accompany her and contemplate her.
Arms, legs, skin, bones. This is the inventory of a body that consumes itself. A body that inhabits another world and another time.
