Ana de día

For its 25th birthday edition, Viva! returns with a specially selected programme of the most exciting film and theatre from across the Spanish-speaking world.

This directorial debut feature from Jaurrieta – teacher, scriptwriter, producer, editor and actor – is a thrilling journey into the personal liberation of a woman unexpectedly expelled from her comfortable but unfulfilling life when a mysterious doppelgänger takes her place. Including echoes of Hitchcock and Lynch, an uncanny atmosphere pervades the film as Ana abandons her fiancé and career, and embraces an alternative version of herself, complete with a job in a seedy cabaret. Exploring her sexuality from this new position in society, Ana seems both vulnerable and empowered, an eerie ambiguity that holds the audience in suspense until the end.
