Tierra madre

Feature Film Mexico 2010

Aidee Gonzalez works as a dancer and stripper in a bar in the centre of Tijuana and her only dream is to guarantee her children a future. One day she meets Rosalba, a woman who works with her in the nightclub, and falls in love with her. They decide to live together and while struggling against a male-oriented world, a strong solidarity grows between them. When Rosalba decides to have a child, Aidee helps her to meet a man, despite her misgivings. A black and white, minimalist, raw and straightforward docu-fiction whose strength lies in the "intimacy" typical of low-budget films. Digitally shot with a small film crew, the movie is a return to Tijuana for director Dylan Verrecchia who had already described the town in Tijuana Makes Me Happy. Aidee Gonzalez plays herself (together with her children) and she wrote and produced her own true story.
