As independent filmmaker, I'm interested in exploring the process through which we humans manage to reinvent our identity and recreate the meaning of life when our truths and certainties have been menaced or dismantled. That's the main concern in the script of En el Nombre de la hija, as it was in my first feature film, Qué tan Lejos.
With my new film I intend to examine the power of symbols and their role in the configuration of our identities. Can a girl achieve symbolic subversion in a world that rests upon indisputable truths?
When symbols are considered sacred and used to control and repress, their profanation is essential in order to preserve our right to uncertainty and embrace the mystery of life. I'd like to believe my film suggests those thoughts and incites those feelings.
