Carolina Mieling, Lucia Rosati | Mexico 2009 | 35 Min. | OmeU
Bitt für uns (Pray for us) isa documentary that tries to reconstruct the history and the influence of the Virgin of Guadalupe in Mexico (especially in Guadalajara, Jalisco) from different points of view. Its focus lies on the archetype of the Mexican woman who is always in wake, praying and taking care of her children. Whilst feeding machism which has struck roots and become uncontested for many years. Bitt für uns (Pray for us) goes beyond the social microscope to present a cultural kaleidoscope, where the reality of the woman is exposed confirming with traditions, symbols, cultural evolutions, machismo and miracles.
