About this submission

The film is inspired by the painting The Toilet of Venus (‘The Rokeyby Venus’) by Diego Velazquez in The National Gallery, London. In this painting, Venus is toward a mirror, but she seems to be looking at someone behind her.

This is a story about a teenage girl. She saves the heartbroken girl she has peeping, as well as herself. The story is about young women’s desire and self-growth, told in a dreamy and psychological way, which is an approach I enjoyed and explored in several works of mine.
