Holly Jones Ecuador-based producer Daniela Fuentes Moncada of Epopeya is introducing the introspective queer feature, “Ñusta,” as part of three regional films on her development slate at Locarno’s Producer’s Lab, an Open Doors initiative spotlighting Latin America and Caribbean talent.Epopeya teams Moncada with founder María de los Ángeles Palacio.Underscoring the project’s industry pulling power, co-producing the project are Director Papu Corotto at Argentina’s HAIN Cine (“Esteros”) alongside Lady Vinces(“Checoslovaquia”) and Silvia Arellano (“En Medio Del Laberinto”) of Peru’sCasa Aguaflorida.The pair bring poignant narratives to life, with Moncada previously backing “La Mala Noche” directed by Gabriela Calvache, a raw portrait of human trafficking that premiered at SXSW and was selected by festivals worldwide, receiving 15 awards and nominations.
Epopeya produces animation, documentary and fiction with a focus on forward-thinking narratives. “We believe we have a powerful tool to transform the world one viewer at a time, that’s why we produce films which showcase diversity and become an opportunity to develop new talents.
Our audience is the one that allows art to stimulate their lives and reflect on the purpose of community,” Moncada opined.Written and directed by Ecuador’s Christian Rojas (“Chigualo”), Ñusta” delves into the complexities of coming out to a less than hospitable community.The film follows Kallpa, a 12-year-old indigenous boy from the Ecuadorian highlands, as he slowly realizes his urge to transition.
