Spotlight Tatiana Huezo
In a way, Tatiana Huezo’s journey starts in Cinquera in El Salvador, her paternal grand- mother’s hometown. One afternoon, as she was walking down the streets, someone mistook her for an inhabitant long gone. She walked into the church and not only was she taken aback by the holes left by the bullets from machine guns, she was also shocked by a make- shift mural comprised of pictures of missing youngsters. As well as prompting her to leave behind a more traditional form of documentary making, the contrast between the faces of the disappeared and the jungle’s presence gave birth to a project that started with El lugar más pequeño, continued by Ausencias, and concluded, at least for now, with Tempestad.
Thanks to her unique and sensitive gaze, Los Cabos International Film Festival has decided to put the spotlight on Tatiana Huezo’s body of work. This is also an ideal opportunity to screen for the first time ever a teaser of Noche de fuego, her first fiction film, in which she continues to explore the impact of violence on those most vulnerable.
