Thursday 30 June 2016

The short film ‘WOMEN IN VAIVÉN’ starring Laura Cortón and co-starring our very own Marta da Silva, has been nominated at the Outlantacon Short Film Festival.

‘WOMEN IN VAIVÉN’ revolves around the story of Zoe Taína who is about to marry her girlfriend in Puerto Rico. As she struggles to fit into her grandmother’s old wedding dress, she receives a surprise visit from her mother, who’s been dead since Taína was a newborn. Zoemaris, a rebellious first generation Puerto Rican, compels Taína to forgive her for missing this momentous occasion, and to have compassion for her grandma Zoe Tilde, a conservative Spaniard who upholds the old traditions.
Caught between both forces, Taína must make peace with her family’s past before someone walks in and catches her talking to her own reflection!

The short film which was directed by Cecilia Pérez-Homar has been nominated for best actress and best cinematography.
