Bullfighting is the quintessential symbol of masculinity and bravery in Spanish culture. As two people born and raised in Spain, we saw making this documentary about female matadors as a way of changing this symbol and shifting gender roles that have been defined for centuries. Making the film has also been a personal journey of exploring and questioning a culture. As we worked on the film for eight years, our goal was to create an intuitive, provocative and intimate film. Our intention in this, our directorial debut, is to open a window for viewers to enter into a unique world without judgment, focusing on the universal struggle of our two protagonists.
