Eye Two Times Mouth is crossed by a recurring theme inspired by the Japanese proverb “The slightest flap of a butterfly’s wings can be heard on the other side of the world.”
Luz – a sensible, committed girl – dreams of transforming herself, like a caterpillar transforms into a chrysalis and then a butterfly. She appears to us in all her splendor when we finally see her on stage as Cio-Cio San, Puccini’s protagonist; her metamorphosis is complete. In Eye Two Times Mouth, everything is connected: the personal and the mythical past as well as the hands, the ears, the eyes and the mouth. As Lila Avilés points out, “it is the story of the journey.”
Lila Avilés’ new episode for Women’s Tales will be shown for the first time at the Curzon Mayfair cinema on 15 February. The short will then be available on Miu Miu digital channels and streaming on MUBI worldwide.
