Carmencita

Carmencita

In this documentary short, filmmaker Nayibe Tavares-Abel sets out to make a film based on her great grandmother’s diary entries written in 1918. Incorporating stop motion animation and a silent film shot in 16mm, the filmmaker begins with the aim of poking fun at her great grandmother’s jealousy and conceit, but ends up revealing much about herself in the process.
