Dominga Sotomayor is a Chilean filmmaker celebrated for her impressive cycle of carefully understated films focused upon characters passing through liminal transitional zones and moving toward revelations that come when and where they are least expected. Across three feature films and numerous shorter works, Sotomayor has refined a patiently observational and quietly personal mode of narrative cinema that uses its stories of becoming to meditate, in subtle yet profound ways, upon larger themes of family, identity and the ideological undercurrents shaping them.
