JEANETTE

Xurxo Chirro

Spain 9 min min Fiction

Synopsis

Twelve shots and some fadeouts in order to examine the expressive power of the face. An anti-selfie film? Teenager Jeanette receives reproaches from her mother, suggestions from grownups and friends and caresses from a young man she likes. What matters is to pay attention to the same “written” differences from and in her facial reactions. *Catalan première
