Winning our hearts with Gloria, Paulina Garcia once again draws the portrait of a strong woman who takes the direction of fate in her own hands. The Desert Bride tells the story of Cecilia, a 54-year-old woman whose life is destroyed when she loses her job with a family in Buenos Aires and decides to cross the desert in search for a new job. Directors Cecilia Atán and Valeria Pivato in their debut feature follow in the footsteps of respected Argentine filmmakers Pablo Trapero, Juan Campanella, and Christopher Hampton. The premiere of this powerful drama was made at the Cannes Film Festival’s A Certain Look sidebar.
