La femme qui se poudre

Directed by Patrick Bokanowski
France, 1972
Short, Fantasy, Horror

Synopsis

An evocation of concealment and unmasking, where the mundane act of a Victorian-era woman’s ritualistic application of cosmetic powder seemingly opens the window – or perhaps, Pandora’s Box – into underlying human anxieties of physical beauty, youth, desirability, and objectification.
