Juan Cristóbal, casi al llegar a Zapadores is a bio-drama born of research into the materials, documents and stories of two women with a number of things in common. One is 72, the other 68. They have both lived in the neighborhood of Recoleta for almost 40 years, barely 25 steps from each other. In addition to sharing secrets, tales and a neighborhood, they are the director’s grandmothers. They are charged with staging their stories with the help of two actors and a filmmaker. It’s a production that shuns conventional dramatic structure and works from the concept of a “living museum” (a place full of traces and vestiges, of details that illuminate private, everyday history) of the lives of two anonymous women and shows how fragments that fluctuate between the real and the fictional eventually shape a collective identity.
