Miss María, Skirting the Mountain (Señorita María, la falda de la montaña)

Part of the Documentaries Strand


Boavita is a rural, conservative Catholic village embedded in the Andes and frozen in time. In the foothills of these mountains lives Miss María Luisa Fuentes. She is 45 years old and was born a boy. Behind what appears to be just another life mired in gender and identity conflict, lies a bitter, unimaginable family history, its deepest roots seasoned with hatred. The horrors of rural life in Colombia with all its religious morality have done nothing but increase the power of this solitary soul.
