Siena/ga (Siena-Ciénaga)

Siena/ga (Siena-Ciénaga)

Catalina Cortés Severino

The name Siena/Ga(Siena-Ciénaga) refers to the space in-between, within which this autobiography develops. The common thread and driving force of this film are the stories of location, dislocation, and relocation of my grandmother, mother, sister, and me, in an approximation of how these places have been lived and desired, and how the different female subjectivities and intersubjectivities have been conformed through the spiral passages of time.


Catalina Cortés Severino is currently pursuing a doctorate in Anthropology, History, and Cultural Theory at the Istituto Italiano di Scienze Umane del'Universita di Siena-Italy. She earned her Masters in Cultural Studies and Documentary Production from the Communications department at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.
