And so it is when Eva appears in the life of our protagonist, Lucía, a teenager suffering from anisomastia, a condition meaning noticeably different size of breasts. Things will change when she is dragged by her mother to spend a few days in a spa, and there she meets Eva. Eva is her mother's Watsu therapist, and seems to have everything that Lucia wants for herself. As a result of this brief encounter, a friendship will be born as a spark leading towards Lucía’s self acceptance and love of her body.

Title: Como Agua de Mayo | Shortfilm | Duration: 20 minutes | Format: Digital

The standards of beauty for adolescents are subjective constructions that mean no help and, sooner or later, tend to disappear.

I didn't have anisomastia but I didn't need it either. My wide hips, too frizzy hair, and unbreakable belly where, and are, more than enough. At Lucia's age I fantasized with ideas such as having breast surgery or following absurd diets to lose weight. I never did either of those but I did do lots of nonsense. Nevertheless, time passed and I grew up, and meeting people led me to know myself. Years later, I no longer see those facts as defects but the unique features that make my self.

If Lucía wants to get closer to Eva, she will have to start putting her insecurities in the background.

This is an outward and also inward journey, about either dropping our defenses to get closer to others or continuing in the safety of our isolation. How difficult it is sometimes to love oneself is what we want to talk about in this project.

The ideal of breast size is something that has varied according to the time but breasts themselves have always remained tenaciously representative of women.

The Spa

There's something very noticeable about these places where people share space and privacy: we expose ourselves to strangers even more than we normally do around relatives and known people. A spa is the location that gives rise to Lucia's conflict but also the place that will mean the beginning of a new stage, when she meets Eva. The spa becomes a third main character, it is a wide and hostile space in which our protagonist feels small and exposed. This space is therefore crucial to our history, which is why we are dedicating time and effort to find the perfect location.

#01 / ¡Gracias a los que os vais sumando a esta aventura!

¡Hola a tod@s l@s mecenas que nos estáis apoyando con el proyecto! Muchas gracias, ¡nos hace mucha ilusión ver como cada día os vais sumando a esta aventura!💕

Hoy es nuestro primer post en el blog del Verkami y es para comunicaros que, debido a las restricciones que han ido apareciendo a lo largo de estas semanas, nos hemos visto obligados a retrasar las fechas de rodaje.

Esto nos complica algunos asuntos pero a la vez nos permite seguir rodando. Por ahora las fechas se han quedado del 11 al 21 de diciembre, justo antes de las vacaciones ;)

¡Esperemos que no se complique nada más y al fin podamos dar vida al corto antes de que acabe el año!🍀

Una vez más, gracias a tod@s, sin vosotr@s esto no sería posible,

Un abrazo enorme de todo el equipo, ✨¡¡seguimos!!✨


                                     .
