Sumaglla is a living museum of antiques, arcane paintings, curios and collections, a beautiful but crumbling villa in Cuenca, Ecuador. It's custodian is Cecilia, a direct descendant of Adolfo Vázquez Moreno, she lives with her helper, dogs, cats and birds. She is a discerning though forbidding woman who speaks a mix of French and Spanish which few can interpret. She gazes out through Venetian windows with their baroque frames . but mostly her glance is inward to a world trapped by time. The people who visit and inhabit her world are fleeting and disjointed, they reflect an interior and confusing existence.
This short film is like an unsolved detective story or life, the clues are like clouds in a philosophical pool.
"The whole world is simply my story, projected back to me on the screen of my own perception." Zen Proverb
