Noelí Overseas Laura Amelia Guzmán, Israel Cárdenas

Film index A to Z

Noelí en los países

In 2014, Laura Amelia Guzmán and Israel Cárdenas wrote and directed the feature film Dólares de Arena, starring Geraldine Chaplin and young Dominican actress Yanet Mojica. In Noelí Overseas, the same filmmakers work with Mojica once again, following her to a film shoot in Italy. Initially stricken with homesickness, the young woman seems to retreat into herself. But then she starts to take control of her new environment. Filmed with great sensitivity by a camera attuned to the slightest shifts in her being, Mojica seems to change, on-screen, into a strong, sensual, mysterious and graceful woman. An unforgettable coming-of-age story. (GB)
