Summary:
This movie poster boldly depicts a women's body cropped from the waist down, on crutches, missing a leg. The symmetrical composition, large planes of color and drastic cropping emphasize the missing limb and add drama. The script, adapted by Emilio Diaz Valcarcel, is based on a short story by Rene Marques. (From exhibition text by Marvette Perez.)
