Awaiting Her, takes us through a day in the life of Francisco, a shoe-shine boy who wakes up to find his father bleeding in his own room. He would like to stay with him but is sent off to work... he shines Jeffrey's shoes. Jeffrey is an economist in town to promote the empowerment of women and gender equality. Jeffrey’s mother dies that night, and he drives aimlessly through the city until he falls into Lula's arms. Later that night Lula, is savagely beaten and returns home with a broken face and a broken heart.
In this world of men, we are still awaiting her...
DIRECTOR BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE:
I am grateful to Art for continually helping me move forward, remain curious and become a more conscious human being. I wish to continue growing through my work, so that I may contribute with all my being, to the work of Art that is Life.
I am back in my home country with my first film project, a 15 min short called "Awaiting Her", born from the heart made with my guts.
