She’s not holding a magic wand. That’s a needle and thread.
Pushed to the edge, this mother sews shut her baby’s mouth. Her bundle of joy had turned into a gaping void, consuming everything that she holds dear.
Appetite devours love in a battle of wills, where mother and child end with no more mouths to feed. Soon, someone will be eating out of the house.
‘Mouth’ won the top prize in Animation at the Certamen de Cortos Santa María de Europa and an Honourable Mention at Asians On Film Festival.
