Extraordinary stories are being developed in the lives of the women that inhabit periphery neighborhoods, but not being known outside their private sphere. It was the search of those peculiar biographies that made the film possible. Through a vivid and immersive research process the narrative was build, thanks to the complicity between the women filming and the ones being filmed, resulting in a movie that transits constantly between reality and fiction.
The screenplay wasn’t written traditionally, but made on the daily basis during conversations, memories, observations, provocations and re-takes. We worked trying to rearrange what was real, since there is no art without transformation. “Baronesa” is an invitation to share experiences through the feminine point of view and its representation.
