at the 2022 Rendezvous With Madness Festival

“Mis Dos Voces / My Two Voices”
Directed by Lina Rodríguez
2022 | Canada | 68 minutes | Spanish with English subtitles

In “My Two Voices,” Canadian director Lina Rodriguez paints a lyrical and truly unique portrait of what it means to be an immigrant and how this can affect one’s sense of self. Shot with luminous 16mm film, the documentary introduces audiences to three Latina women who gradually reveal their individual migration stories, discuss the inherent challenges in starting afresh in a new country and explore how those difficult experiences have shaped their lives. Though their origins differ greatly, all three have faced similar struggles with language and belonging as they attempt to balance their present with complicated memories of the past. Rodriguez allows the identities of these women to remain concealed throughout and, instead, uses their voices to shift perspectives and reframe their emotional journeys of self-discovery and understanding. “My Two Voices” is a thoughtfully constructed cinematic ode to resilience in the face of trauma and perseverance in the face of seismic upheaval.
