The Heiresses is a 2019 La Babosa Cine "The Paraguayan cinema is just beginning to be seen, the Berlinale can be the great launching platform for a film made on a human scale, tiny," the director told Efe, after the premiere of his film, last night, at the Berlinale Palast. Las Herederas is not only his debut at the head of a feature film, but also the first film with which Paraguay attends the competition of the international European film festival. "Paraguay is still invisible, cinematographically, but it has many things to tell and wishes to do so," continued Martinessi, born in Asunción in 1973 and who participated in the Talent Campus of the Berlinale in 2013, a forum for young people talents of cinema. His film tells the story of two women, Chela and Chiquita -interpreted by Ana Brun and Margarita Irún-, who after decades living as a couple must separate for an indefinite period, while they sell piece by piece furniture and cutlery from the house they inherited.
