El Eterno Femenino/The Eternal Femenine

Directed and Adapted by Carolina Soza | April, 2005

A chance encounter in a Mexico City hair salon developed into a fantastical, farcical exploration of gender roles and expectations. Written in 1975, Castellanos' groundbreaking feminist satire of traditional Mexican femininity brought together traditional role models like Eve to historic Mexican figures Adelita, Sor Juana and La Malinche. This combination of humor and biting social commentary amused, educated, and challenged!
