Life passes by slowly, repetitively. A tired but resistant body. On the other side of the camera, an attempt to find that fleeting moment that reveals to us something more from life. From observation to construction with the character itself. Palmira is the portrait of several encounters as well as the testimony of the process and evolution of that portrait.
