IF I COULD WISH FOR SOMETHING

Dora García

Belgium, France, Mexico, Norway , 2021 / 68 min / Spanish & Purépecha OV with English subt. / Documentary

Collaboration with the MUDAM / 2030 Award By Luxembourg Aid & Development Nominee

Si Pudiera Desear Algo portrays an intimate view of the feminist demonstrations that have taken place in Mexico over recent years.

Dora García proposes a soundtrack to the incredible feminist demonstrations that have been taking place in Mexico City over the last five years (2016-2021). The film follows two paths: the first is a collective recollection of images and sounds from the feminist marches in the city; the second consists of the composition, recording and final performance of the film‘s theme song by trans artist La Bruja de Texcoco.
