Writer/Director Michelle Garza Cervera uniquely explores the complexities of first-time motherhood in her darkly affective debut feature, Huesera. Imbuing a sense of fear and loss of self that is inherent to becoming a parent, the film uses the supernatural curse of “La Huesera” to heighten Valeria (Natalia Solián) sense of anxiety.

Valeria’s joy at becoming pregnant with her first child is quickly taken away when she’s cursed by a sinister entity. As danger closes in and relationships with her family become fractured, she’s forced deeper into a chilling world of dark magic that threatens to consume her. A group of witches emerge that could be her only hope for safety and salvation, but not without grave risk.

Huesera had its world premiere at the Tribeca Festival on 9 June 2022 and won the Best New Narrative Director and Nora Ephron awards.
