Short fiction with Núria Guiu

ATMA is a warrior who, after losing a battle, appears in the woods, almost dead. Forgotten by her army, she decides to shed the armor that has protected her body and set out on the path that will take her to the final surrender, to victory.

Between story and performance, Carla Subirana illustrates a metaphor of empowerment through a wounded fighter who, after removing her armor, comes back to life and takes control of her body.

The Warrior’s Awakening

“Subirana now reappears with this short that reinvents her, that places her on the trigger as if sha was starting all over again. This ability to restart or temporarily change a trajectory must be counted, then, among the skills of current Spanish cinema”.
