Trailer for San Sebastian game Daughter Of Rage revealed

After a world premiere at the Toronto Film Festival and before his bow in the New Directors competition in San Sebastian, BFF, who directs international sales, has given diversity Exclusive access to the trailer for Nicaraguan director Laura Baumeister’s debut film, Daughter of Rage.

The film follows 11-year-old María and her mother Lilibeth as they struggle through poverty by collecting and reusing trash from the local landfill. Dealing with stifling generational debts passed down in communities that work hard to stay afloat, the film also delves into precocious family ties, abandonment and the salvation of an imagination that allows the protagonist to deal with uncertainty .

As the trailer begins, a massive amount of trash litters the frame. María is alone and looks at the other children on top of a mountain of rubbish. Detached from her peers, a large collection bag draped over her slight frame, she trudges through the dump in search of goods.

Scenes of playful tenderness and caring are juxtaposed with shots of Lilibeth rebuking and scolding a melancholy María, demonstrating the duality of their complicated relationship.

As veiled tensions rise, Lilibeth leaves María to work in a factory while she travels to pay off debts. Maria is shown around the property and meets Tadeo; The two form an instant and intimate bond and confide in each other.

More scenes that traverse her adversity tease her imaginative way of coping before following her away from her new found friend Tadeo and the factory in search of her mother or a little closure. The community around them is on fire, but despite the ever-evolving trauma, the glimmer of hope remains in their eyes.

Produced by Laura and Rossana Baumeister and Bruna Haddads at Nicaragua-based Felipa Films and Martha Orozco at Marth Films in Mexico along with co-producers Halal, Heimafilm, Promenades Films, Caron Pictures, Dag Hoel Filmproduksjon and Nephilim Producciones, the project is the first feature film of shot in the country by a Nicaraguan-born director.

Daughter of Rage will compete in San Sebastián’s New Directors section alongside 15 other films from up-and-coming directors, including Rocío Mesa’s second feature Tobacco Barns, Maria Elorza’s To Books and Women I Sing, and Jeong Ji-Hye’s opening film, Jeong sun.”

The film offers a sobering commentary on the course of grief and reveals the weight of abandonment; that settles like a seed, that takes firm root and penetrates the depths of the protagonist’s psyche like a stubborn weed. It is a poignant nod to the stark contrast between the lives of children born to safety and those raised to cyclical upheaval.

“In the concept of family that we know, adults, in a sense, protect children from certain information, shortcomings, fears and anxieties so that they can live. Life gradually enters their worlds,” said Baumeister. “In the case of these children, there is no one to protect them. Life occurs from the moment they are born, their minds immediately collide and they have to contend with the real world.” Trailer for San Sebastian game Daughter Of Rage revealed
