Title: Five Pictures of a Seated Woman
Year: 2005
Production: Argentina/Spain

Five scenes, each one shot on a yearly basis, describe the last stage in the life of an old lady. The succession of portraits keeps a strict chronological order which goes with the character till her death’s eve. Knitting, counting the pearls of a rosary, eating and walking are the actions registered by the author in order to capture those moments and gestures in which death seems to anticipate itself, briefly haunting and then withdrawing, somehow foretelling its definite advance.
