Paint on Glass
The Glazier's Daughter
After spending her childhood in her father's glass shop, the author interprets glass as a familiar material. A confused childhood observed 20 years later, a childhood that the glazier's daughter tries to treasure using paint and glass, elements that she will soon discover are just as fragile as her own memory.
After spending my childhood in my dad's glass shop, glass became a familiar material, which represents a refuge, but one of the most fragile I know. My memory is a treasure that, like glass, breaks. The missing parts are just as present as those that are still here. A confused childhood, observed 20 years later, a childhood in constant dissonance between treasure and oblivion.
"The Glazier's Daughter" is an animated short film painted with oil on glass, which makes sense from its materialization: returning to my father's workshop to rediscover those forgotten treasures, going through the glass to be able to get closer to them and face my great fear: The passage of time.
