For the Wichi, an indigenous Argentinean ethnic group, women’s long hair is a question of pride. “Never let your hair be cut”, Yolanda often heard. She now works far from home as a housemaid in a white family about to celebrate their daughter’s 15th birthday. As the party approaches, Yolanda flees in her childhood memories and the Wichi culture.
The story of this birthday meal preparation is punctuated by short poetic immersions in Yolanda’s memories. In her native language, the young girl tells us the way in which her ancestors and kin have passed their culture and their traditions on to her.
Born in 1979 in Salta, Northern Argentina, Daniela Seggiaro graduated from the University of Buenos Aires in the field of image and sound. In her work, she addresses historical and anthropological themes. Her work includes documentaries, animated short films and institutional movies. NOSILATLAJ. LA BELEZZA is her first feature film.
