The Beauty of Becoming

THE BEAUTY OF BECOMING is a documentary essay that follows, inhabits and embodies the way of looking at four women artists, while they become fictional characters throughout the film. From a first person perspective, the filmmaker tells who these women are and what they do, yet they remain undefined, fragmented and blurry.
