CiNEOLA is a platform for Latin American stories, connecting audiences with diverse representations of Latinoamérica on film.
Constanza, a housemaid of meticulous and almost obsessive gestures, works at Irene’s house, a 65-year-old woman who is temporarily in a wheelchair. A snapshot of a meeting between two lonely people.
Irene is my mother and Constanza is Constanza. They both play themselves in the film. Constanza is a trans woman but this is not the main subject in the film. My intention was to make the portrait of a person: with all her complexities and subtleties, in all her humanity.
