    • Synopsis
    • ragmentos is a short film built upon the collection of the stories of ten women of different ages and backgrounds, distinct, unique vignettes of each woman’s day. The vignettes, moments of quotidian or extraordinary events, are chosen indiscriminately but they are important catalysts. Their purpose is to attempt to capture, through an unguarded window of time, some portion of the woman’s interior thoughts and reflection and, in so doing, reveal, in part, the rich complexity of her individual self. The film is interwoven with documental footage of women in the city.
      Fragmentos emerges from our inner selves. Composed of self-observation and self-examination, our film is a quest to comprehend women’s complexity. We share our journey through film bringing to light a numinous understanding.
      We, as directors, want to create a film free of our own social, critical and moral positions. For this reason, the women’s lives, their behaviors and experiences are documented without commentary, filters or artifice.
      Our primal purpose in Fragmentos is to capture women's reflective moments in their daily lives, creating sensations. We don't pretend to give life lessons or answers to anyone; neither to explain how women are. We just want to provide the viewer the chance to observe these excerpts of women's lives so they can make their own conclusions. The documentary footage maximize thediversity of the feminine world.
      As women sometimes we can't understand ourselves. We are so different and this diversity is part of these stories and it is why we want to share them. We know women are not the only complex human beings; everybody is complex no matter the gender. We focus in women because we are women, because we can talk about what we know as women.
