Teresa Serrano, Glass Ceiling, making-of

Glass Ceiling
Mexico, HD, b/2, 2 min. 17 sec. 

In the short film - voiceless and with the camera from different angles - we follow a man and a woman, both middle-aged and dressed in casual business clothes, climbing a wide and high open staircase. The man has a coiled rope in his hand. They climb slowly and independently from each other, the man lassoing the woman every time she gets a step or two ahead of him. At the top of the stairs there is a large glass door leading to the building’s floor of offices. The man walks through and crosses the hallway, without a backwards glance nor spoken word, while the woman is left alone standing rigidly and emotionless. Then she walks back a few steps and with strength throws her heavy bag against the glass door, which breaks into pieces. A dazzling light fades out to the end.

Stills: Thomàs Canchola
