This wonderfully filmed short from Totuma uses a rapid series of visual metaphors to emphasize the humanity and even beauty inherent in the aftermath of a mastectomy. The short was created as part of a breast cancer awareness campaign on the LIFETIME TV network throughout Latin America. It’s an incredible testament to the filmmakers for creating something simultaneously humorous and strangely refreshing about such a challenging subject.
