What does a woman think when she takes a shower after waking up, or applies makeup with acute precision? Martina Scarpelli shows that in this moment of absolute focus on her own face – the body part which claims to portray our identity best – she thinks of her own existence in the face of the whole universe. In “Cosmoetico”, the ascetic cinematic form makes for a great counterpoint for the animation’s overwhelming topic. The metaphysics of everyday activities is confronted with the enormity of what’s outside of humanity – the reality that cannot be grasped by reason. However, she wants to think that if the world cannot be understood, one can at least try to understand their Being-in-the-world.
