Director Statement

Child trafficking is one of the most painful pending issues in society. Sexual abuse of children is something that happens around the world every day, but over time we have become complicit in our silence. “La Niña” seeks to make the viewer aware of what is happening and experience the psychological trauma that the victims and their families go through. For this, through our protagonist, we explore the limit between the pain and madness of a father who has lost a part of himself. A color palette will flow from pastels and bright colors highlighting idyllic moments and a much colder one highlighting the loneliness and emptiness experienced as we advance in the plot, as does the sound, the looped dialogues and the various frames.
