    In the biggest public university in Latin America a group of theatre students and their teacher prepare Antigone, a Greek tragedy that addresses the conflict between the rules of power and the will of a young woman to do the right thing. Life, theater and fiction are interwoven following the montage in the halls, in their homes, in public spaces and surrealist landscapes of the city.

    As a cinematographer and a director, I am interested in what the images have to say rather than the dialogue. I want to know what the images mean.
