Awaiting Her (2010)
Awaiting Her, takes us through a day in the life of Francisco, a shoe-shine boy who wakes up to find his father bleeding in his own room. He would like to stay with him but is sent off to work… he shines Jeffrey’s shoes. Jeffrey is an economist in town to promote the empowerment of women and gender equality. Jeffrey’s mother dies that night, and he drives aimlessly through the city until he falls into Lula’s arms. Later that night Lula, is savagely beaten and returns home with a broken face and a broken heart. In this world of men, we are still awaiting her.
