The belly of the whale

Belly of the whale Trailer

Project: The Belly of the whale

Start Date: October 2009

Completion Date: December 2009


In the film, the act of giving birth is seen as a re-birth. And gestation is shown as a heroic process made of efforts, fears, uncertainties, hopes and expectations:
waiting, vulnerable and powerless, as if in the belly of the whale.
To be inside the belly and to be the whale at the same time, imagining the face of the baby she is carrying.
