2019 - 2020
Amparo was a diva of “destape" cinema even before the genre was born. She’s the international face of the movement, but also a broken jewel as a result of that wave of cinema and the men who managed her career. All of this changes when Yuriko, a young Erasmus student from the University of Tokyo, decides to make a documentary about Amparo’s life after renting a room in her emblematic house. Family, friends, neighbors, and acquaintances tell-all of the brightness and sometimes darkness of Amparo and "La Carretas:” the muse of destape.
