Zoe Leonard. Al río / To the River

In collaboration with

Luxembourg City Film Festival

Si Pudiera Desear Algo portrays an intimate view of the feminist demonstrations that have taken place in Mexico over recent years. Dora García proposes a soundtrack to the incredible feminist demonstrations that have been taking place in Mexico City over the last five years (2016-2021). The film follows two paths: the first is a collective recollection of images and sounds from the feminist marches in the city; the second consists of the composition, recording and final performance of the film’s theme song by trans artist La Bruja de Texcoco.
