The apparition of Saint Raphael at a laundromat in Panama City.
Aparición de San Rafael en una lavandería en Ciudad de Panamá
Made in a single shot from a chance laundromat encounter. The black eye of desire. Rafael offers a reaction shot to his street cruising efforts, and the unwanted fight that ensued. In his extravagant speaking he names himself as an archangel, his chest open so that the wings of his words can lift every ordinary encounter into a queer sublime.
