Mònica Rovira

Spain 59 min Catalan premiere Documentary


When you see someone and (s)he dazzles you, you suddenly fill yourself with the other and no longer see anything. You just feel intensely every moment as it fades away. From the uncertainty, vulnerable, you look persistently for any hint of reality. Trying to see Sarai, her first lover, Mònica, a filmmaker in her thirties, shows what emerges from the threshold of her look.
