At Dawn the Flowers Open the Gates of Paradise (United Kingdom)

by Elzbieta Piekacz

Akiko works in a central London hotel as a housekeeper where she finds refuge in a personal project.

When she hears that the love of her life, Oskar, has married, she builds from her photographs a kind of cocoon; an altar, on which she lies down, holding a ritual to free her spirit from the world with which she cannot be reconciled.
