Lázara Rosell Albear, Secuestrando a Barbie / Mono No Monogatari (2019)
Secuestrando a Barbie is the intimate portrait of Venezuelan Daniela Gallegos aka Aerea Negrot aka Miss Dandruf, a singer, performer, electronic music producer, and DJ.
It is a minimal but multilayered cinematic portrait that seeks to find the person behind the many personalities of Daniela. Interviews, performative elements and reenactments are used in an attempt to outline a strong creative presence. In an effort to confront and exorcise the harsh life that Daniela shares with many of her generation coming from Latin America, the document tells a tale of childhood transformations, transgender struggles, altered states of consciousness, self-acceptance, and freedom.
