Director Statement

La Catrina is a love story that talks about how in certain occasions universal laws allow lovers to meet again and have the opportunity to recognize their love and resolve pending issues. A love that can be superficial and earthly in this world, it becomes “Transcendental” in the underworld and the paradise. Traveling through levels of consciousness between humankind’s material existence and paranormal planes. Between universal enlightenment and earthy limitations. A love that never dies in the other world despite how short human life is in this one.
