Project info


Mujer futura (FUTURE WOMAN) is an animated documentary series in development.
It is inspired by the achievements that the feminist movement and its claims are conquering all around the world, putting a special focus on my country: Argentina. Since I have read the Chimamanda Adichie´s book: How to rise feminist, I´ve been wondering about how future women and future societies will be like, based on the changes that are happening in this special transition moment. It is a personal and also a community question. Change challenges us all. To imagine and propose a possible future, I decided the best it to talk from real women’s voices and experiences. That’s why the content of the project is based on interviews. We have already made a first series of interviews, with the help of a sociologist. The next step is to find through the interviews: the ideas that have already change, the situations women can live differently every day, the consciousness of patriarchy and its consequences and the things we still need to change to live in a more equal society.
During the residency I will work from the interviews looking for the concepts that will be the spirit of each one of the episodes of the series. Collecting experiences, ideas, contradictions, dreams, hopes. Also, start to work on animation tests for the pilot or first episode of the series.
