Synopsis: AY ANTONIA tells the story of a young woman who returns to her homeland, a small village in Argentina. The short movie is structured in the form of a nonlinear narrative, it unfolds as an organic flow of dreams and memories recalled by Antonia. She evokes defining moments of her life regarding her immediate family and Argentina, and touches the themes of sacrifice, suffering, healing and aging.
“Art became my language to speak about the dichotomy of growing old and being young, gaining something and losing something, the space within and what is outside, conscious and unconscious as well as solitude and closeness. I see that the art that fascinates me along with my own is always about the dialogue between the two sides.”
