Film Info
Original Language:Spanish


Dominican filmmaker Victoria Linares Villegas prepares to shoot a drama about a pregnant teenager. Her actor, Camila—to better inhabit the lead role—decides to have conversations with several pregnant teenage girls, a process Linares Villegas documents. As Camila and the teenagers interact, questions over Camila’s suitability to portray a character so far from her own lived experience begin to arise. At the same time, the girls slowly move closer to the center of the frame. Ramona inhabits the fertile space between reality and fiction, manipulating film form to pose provocative questions about cinematic representation and, ultimately, the duty of the filmmaker herself.
