My Cake


Nuno Roque Director


    Combining dance, mime and music, "My Cake" is a response to the saying "You can't have your cake & eat it too." The Villain looks back at his childhood, the day he discovers that the image others have of him does not match the one he has of himself.

    The film plays with the themes: ambition, identity, society's pressure, gender bending and the obsession to control one's self-image.
