La Yuma is the third film in the 5-sequence of films for the Pragda Spanish and Latin American fim festival.
Nicaragua, Spain, Mexico, France / 2011 / 91 min / Spanish with English subtitles
Nicaragua’s first full-length feature in 20 years, La Yuma tells the story of a young woman who dreams of transcending her bleak life in the slums of Managua by becoming a boxer. Looking beyond the meager possibilities that seem available to her (and ignoring the advice of her gang-member friends), she finds solace and hope in her training and falls in love with a middle-class journalism student. In Jaugey’s words, “the strength, the astuteness and determination of the main character, reflect the feelings of a population that faces up adversity and inequality.” With an extraordinary performance by Alma Blanco as Yuma, Jaugey’s film allows us the rare opportunity to get a glimpse of everyday life in this Central American country. Pre-selection for the Oscars® Academy Awards 2011 for Best Foreign Film.
