A series of audiovisual pieces (live action and animation) in dialogue with each other. Aware of how each cultural context constructs identities, shapes the meaning of the body for women, and mark their personal relationship with the image, the artists question the traditional stereotypes of Iranian, Spanish, African and Brazilian women and conclude that identity is established not only by belonging to a certain social, religious or cultural group, but also by the awareness of sharing some of the same universal values.

Una serie de piezas audiovisuales (de imagen real y de animación) que dialogan entre sí. Conscientes de cómo cada contexto cultural construye identidades, moldea el significado del cuerpo de las mujeres y marca la relación personal con la imagen, las artistas cuestionan los estereotipos tradicionales de la mujer iraní, española, africana o brasileña, para concluir que la identidad se establece no solo por la pertenencia a un determinado grupo social, religioso o cultural, sino también por la conciencia de compartir unos mismos valores universales.
