Fany De La Chica – Highlight
I spent my lockdown due to the Coronavirus pandemic rewriting my feature film called “At Dawn” (Al Alba) and this short film is aesthetically and spiritually based on the feature featuring one of my songs from my album "Dressed for a Sunday". The piece highlights one of the topics that summarize my work as an artist: how tradition perpetuates inequality towards women and benefits the patriarchal society. In this sense, the main character breaks the established rules to promote revolution between women so they can join her in the fighting against the patriarchy. The water has a metaphorical meaning of reborn, as I think this is what this society needs, reborn to break the norm through a revolution to achieve gender equality and a more fair status for women
