I Do Miracles
Kiss of the Spiderwoman is the adaptation from a film about two prisoners in a Argentine prison. Molina has been imprisoned for being gay and Valentin is a revolutionary. To escape the horrors of his situation, Molina has delusions of Aurora, a famous movie star known for playing 'The Spider Woman'. Her kiss brings death.
You'll notice a theme running here. I was surprised again by the Spider Woman's ethnicity. And again, I think it adds an element of surprise. The prisoners, also look black to me. This is another image I like. I wish the spiderweb at the bottom of the cage were clearer, but as is, it also reminds me of a bulls eye. I'm not sure the cots were a necessary addition, but I think they emphasize the conflict. Valentin is definitely afraid of Molina.
