    • Synopsis
    • MarieLouise Alemann is an artist and experimental filmmaker who lives in Argentina. The figure featured in Butoh dance is known for its mystery. Someone unknown who comes into a new place, and you need some time to slowly discover who that is. That time is what Constanza Sanz Palacios’ first film builds and handles with precision in order to reveal MarieLouise’s human and artistic figure. MarieLouise’s life is presented as a meditation on the
      passing of time, sharing her doubts and all she has learned over the years. Like two mirrors facing each other that produce infinity right in that spot. Butoh puts an artist in front of a camera lens, and obtains a hypnotic and fantastic effect. It is an unusual crossing between portrait and selfportrait, a border between both.
