Private Project

The Little Seamstress

Ermelinda, a tired and defeated woman, sews out and is the only livelihood of the house where she lives with her daughter Maria, a sensitive child who perceives thar her mother is anguish and confronts her.

The daily life of this family is haunted by the spirit of a Seamstress who is seen by Maria and reports it to his mother. Ermelinda accustomed to popular stories despises it until she sees her convictions shaken by the fear of losing her daughter, what remains, to the unknown or to madness.
