This short film examines possible forms of storytelling in an essayistic context. To create her story this contemporary model of Penelope on one hand is knotting and interweaving text fragments (her thread consists of words instead of fabric), on the other hand she and the second protagonist are communicating by reenacting several iconic film scenes.
The figure was inspired by Penelope, wife of Ulysses, who now, unlike the ancient figure, has become a voice and as well a story to tell. The modern Penelope has thrown out her husband, and that's why Ulysses is travelling and therefore absent.
The level of narrative is organised partly following the principle of the mise en abîme. The formal level also follows this principle and consists of fragmented images and reflexions.
