Madres de los dioses

Pablo Agüero returns to El Bolsón to narrate in three movements (Apocalypse, Illumination, and Genesis) the life of four women who at one point decide to leave their lives and start from scratch, assume a new religion, and build a temple. Mothers of the Gods is a hypnotic, mysterious and somewhat sensual portrait of Samiha, Humana, María, and Maicoño. All of them have embraced their enigmatic return to El Bolsón as a last refuge against the past and loneliness. Each one commits to a different spirituality, and yet there’s something that unites and calls upon them to meet around a bonfire in the nights of full moon. Quoting the beautiful final line of the film spoken by Geraldine Chaplin, each one “has created her own God, her own religion, and her own temple, and yet they form one single people.” They are the new women.
