The Girls of Uchituu
Girls of Uchituu: Between the fine desert dust and the vast Caribbean Sea, runs the daily lives of Sonia and Yelitza, two Wayuu girls, that grow in the midst of the ancient traditions of their native community and the presence of practices that the white foreigners have brought, putting at risk the preservation of the ancestral culture.
Cat’s Craddle: When we first met Joana she seemed a ceramic doll, small, fragile, with a ribbon on her head. Slowly she started to deconstruct herself, revealing a charming complexity. The duality between strength and fragility, freedom and imprisonment, joy and sadness… completely overwhelmed us. The intimacy and complicity raised between us allowed us to fictionalize about her life, and make this special, unclassifiable film.
