    • Synopsis
    • A precursor to the modern camera, the camera obscura provides an upside-down image with perfect perspective. For homely Gertrudis, married to a wealthy landowner in a Jewish colony of Argentina in the late 1800s, a visit from an itinerant French photographer sharpens her view of herself. Until now, her love of art has been confined to setting a beautiful table or arranging a bowl of fruit. Award-winning director Maria Victoria Menis interrupts her storytelling with original Surrealist photographs and authentic archival images from the First World War.
