"MÍA: ALL MINE"
"It takes place in that room in the house where everything we do not know where to put, we put. Where we store things we do not have any use for anymore but we think we will. Like a basement. On that day in that room, Mía, an 8 year old girl, finds her old friend Sinforoso after being separated for a long-long time. But that day is a different day for Mía, because it is the day she has decided to leave home. To leave the house with her mother because in that house there are sad things that Mía does not like. There are difficult things, scary things, nerve-wracking things, but at the end, guess what? She is brave enough to say what she feels, she is brave enough to say: no, and she is brave enough to defend herself.
[Don’t be afraid moms, dads. Sit down with your children and see Mía.]"
Directed by Daniel Jáquez the cast includes Vanessa Flores as Mía and Lester Isariuz as Sinforoso.
“MÍA is a beautiful story. It's sad, but very powerful while also hopeful. It's about the power of childhood and its imagination and the greatness that our hearts are capable of.”
“MÍA es una historia muy bonita. Es triste, pero muy poderosa, muy alentadora a la vez. Es el poder de la niñez y de su imaginación y la grandeza de corazón que tenemos todos.”
