TIFF 2017: WAVELENGHTS. LA LIBERTAD BY LAURA HUERTAS MILLÁN
By Mónica Delgado
In the first minutes of La Libertad, a group of women is observed from fragmentation. Their faces are barely shown and their physiognomies are out of field, shown from their main actions of survival: cooking, knitting, kneading. But during the passing of minutes, Colombian filmmaker Laura Huertas Millán, influenced by the statements of the Sensory Ethnographic Lab, proposes an articulation of a feminine clan in the rural zones of Mexico, with the tradition of handicraft and the urgent resistance and economical independence of women.
