Reviews for „A Love Song in Spanish“ by Ana Elena Tejera

„Excerpts from two love songs appear briefly to break the routine of an elderly woman who still cannot find her freedom and sticks to daily routines of preparing meals, working in the garden and cleaning the house. That part of the film is shown in largely wordless dramatic reconstructions and re-imaginations. The scattered information that sometimes lacks more detailed context is, however, delivered either in voice-over narration or in the collages of the archival material in which, formally, everything is different, but essentially nothing has changed. Tejera highlights that in the film’s most striking shot of the contemporary army marching in front of the projection of the archival material of the military (march) training from the times of Noriega’s regime.“
review by Marko Stojiljković on Ubiquarian

„‚A Love Song in Spanish‘ es la más reciente entrega cinematográfica de Tejera después de su ópera prima “Panquiaco”, que estrenó el año pasado en el Festival Internacional de Roterdám 2020 e hizo lo propio a nivel nacional en el IFF Panamá – Festival Internacional de Cine de Panamá 2020.“
