I’m Argentinian but I’m not Argentinian.
I’m from Madrid but I’m not from Madrid.

A body reflects in a mirror. Skin is a border. It isolates us from being part of a “whole”. It wraps our bodies and bodies inhabit political places. Israel. Negev Desert. Rocky mountains and red granite. I have always been told that this place “belongs to me”. The desert extends itself to an invisible dotted line that belongs to no one and may not even exist. Perhaps this film is a place for dispossession.
The water in the desert, does it have borders?
