Born in El Salvador and raised in Montreal, Canada, Patricia Chica is a Canadian 50+ award-winning director who specializes in psychological dramas, thrillers and edgy documentaries. She is perfectly fluent in English, French and Spanish and has build cult following and a loyal audience for herself internationally in those three markets.
Patricia has a genuine interest in exploring thought-provoking themes that deal with deviant behavior, the search of meaning and the quirkier side of the human experience. Strongly inspired by the real-life experiences and psycho-social issues that shape people's lives, her films present an authentic and realistic portrayal of emotions and situations. Her visual style has been described as provocative and poetic within a humanistic setting. The characters in her films are always heroes and heroines of the non-conventional side of life and always come out strong at the end. Her films often serve as eye-openers and a discussion triggers to talk about taboo subjects that question the definitions of memory, sexuality, identity and consciousness. One of Patricia’s principles is to always depict strong characters, with mood and tone, and exhibit visual ingenuity while delivering an engaging, thought-provoking and entertaining story.
Patricia's previous acclaimed films include Day Before Yesterday (2010, winner of over 10 awards) and The Promise (2000, winner of 10 awards) just to name a few. She also co-directed the award-winning feature documentary Rockabilly 514 (aired on Bravo! Canada, Canal D as well as in the US and Europe). Recent festival hits include Ceramic Tango (2013), Serpent's Lullaby (2014), A Tricky Treat (2015), Crimson Dance (2016) and Morning After (2017). Chica is presently preparing Montréal Girls (2019).
Patricia Chica's work has been presented and/or awarded at over 300 international film festivals, theatres, art centers, universities, cinematheques and on television around the world. Countries like Canada, the USA and Mexico as well as El Salvador (her birth country) have presented retrospectives of her films in the past three years.
Patricia Chica presently divides her time between Montreal and Los Angeles.
