    • Synopsis
    • Part 1: Ara and Marian are sisters. They live with their mother in a small town. Ara works as a babysitter and Marian at a sewing shop. They spend time with their friend Belén, who lives alone with her puppy Lulú. During the days before Christmas, Ara finds a jacket at a second hand store that –according to her- belongs to her father, and asks Marian to fix it. Marian does not believe in that coincidence but decides not to smash her sister’s hopes. Days go by among memories, wishes, gatherings, a motorcycle, and getaways searching for fresh air outside of town. Finally, a train ride will make a reunion possible that will lead them to a full present moment.
      Part 2: The trip of Lilián, a woman of around 45 on her way to her first appointment with the shrink, is the excuse to bring together a lonely man, a son and his friends, a group of workers, dogs, children, celebrations, empty fields, and a production crew, in a combination of fiction and documentary, with a home-video visual style. An intimate journey made of impressions, memories and feelings that could also be only images on Lilian´s mind as she looks out the moving car window. A series of images following one another as raw fragments of a life that dramatically slides downhill, to end up reaching rock bottom and making us realize the only certainty is the people that were there along the way down.
      "Hoy no tuve miedo" is a film about witnesses. About company. The search for shelter, protection. It´s a memory. A place, a celebration; but above all things, it’s a prayer.
      “Hoy no tuve miedo” is a two-title project (originally to have a third one, still in development); two individual pieces that function separately but also form a proposal that crystallizes through these two parts together. Or a film cut in two, a sort of diptych, of which parts not only converse about the same topical and formal inquiries but also become matter of the same search. The first part uses a more narrative and fictional approach to that world and characters; the second one is more like a documentary bursting into one story told through sensations and impressions of its protagonists.
