Uncanny is the close dialogue with cancer and its treatment, the dialogue of a career woman, who suddenly falls from her roles and must try to survive the announcement of a rare, serious, incurable disease.
What can he cling to so as not to fall? First she writes a letter that she will send to 53 people dear to her: it is the same number as her years. He needs to understand. Then he starts using what he knows how to do: photograph.
Only chemotherapy, hospitalizations, two transplants and long isolations in a clean room are not enough. She wants to feel active. He wants to participate in his therapy process. She doesn't want to be alone. This increasingly cancerous society must be watched. It must be flushed out. We must speak of illness, of treatment and, if necessary, even of death. No more taboos.
Making self-portraits, researching his roots in family albums and photographs of the past, making trips to trace forgotten stories, as he had never done. Slowly she realizes that she has activated many voices: they become characters in intimate dialogue with herself.
These floating presences in her room will help her sculpt other and new plots, not wanting to call herself a victim, nor a warrior, nor only through her illness. Thus new words are born, new possible bodies to try to re-enter, after a long period of madness and trauma, in the world.
The world will never be the same.
