Eggshells (1991) [Short]

Cuba/Venezuela (MIFF 1993 , Fiction)
Director: Mariana Rondon

A woman sells tickets in a seedy art-deco cine­ma, as voices from a passionate melodrama float through the foyer, disembodied. The clean­er, reflected and distorted in a mirror, becomes the focus of her romantic dreams. When the mirror shatters, the film moves to an inevitable tragic conclusion.
