Enchantment

Maite Vaquero

Synopsis

The plot proposal of ‘Embeleso’ is simple. Presentation of two people and the intention to awaken curiosity to know what connection exists between the two. Gema and Caterina are presented through the most basic and common to all human beings: sensations. The starting point is broad, but this point of departure is so universal that allows the viewer a certain freedom to make their own idea of how each are. Because the important thing is not in their differences, but in what they share, in the type of relationship that they establish in a specific environment, and that produces a hypnotic sensation that one tries to capture through the camera.
