Synopsis

Hilaria has been working as a maid for Luciana’s family for forty years. One day, Luciana starts making home videos of their daily interactions, exploring the feelings and habits that tie their lives together. She kept filming for four years, revealing the massive yet imperceptible distance between them like a mysterious game of proximity and distance from which they cannot escape. [cg]

Director statement

“The whole shooting of Nana has been made on my own with a handheld camera. I started filming home videos with Hilaria without further intention. Later on, I decided to make a film about her continuing with this way of filming, because I consider it the only way of portraying our intimate relationship. The structure of the film has been constructed during the process of making it. […] The images I made of Hilaria show the physical, social and cultural distance between us, and through the lens, I have had a new look of her and me and everything that has to do with ‘her’ and ‘me’.”
