I have directed and produced few shorts, from documentary, to animation, experimental and fiction.
We find ourselves in Mexico-Tenochtitlan, the year is 1850. Behind the walls of the Convent of Conceptionist nuns, a battle against darkness takes place. Regina, a young woman, is giving herself up to a life of reclusion, far from worldly temptations. During a grand ceremony, she is to marry God. However, Regina is sinful, and has fallen into disgrace by pursuing her desires. A secret is murmured, small steps echo on the thick stone walls, glances are exchanged, an abortion takes place at candlelight. With help from the nuns she is freed from her impurities, so she can surrender in body and soul to the divine order, and become God’s spouse.
Regina is a film about desire and the imperfection of the human condition.
