Cheddy García sufre en la piel de “Juanita”

El sufrimiento que se causa cuando la cabeza de familia “abandona” su hogar para viajar a otro país en busca de una “mejor vida”, para ella y sus parientes, es uno de los capítulos que se vive día a día en la sociedad dominicana.

Rol femenino en “Juanita”

Leticia Tonos ha ido dando forma a una filmografía con ricos personajes femeninos como protagonistas. Esto es algo que no es casual y lo ha vuelto a hacer con “Juanita”, su tercer largometraje de ficción.

Leticia Tonos: 

"Decidida y arrojada Leticia Tonos apuesta, sin pensarlo dos veces, al cine dominicano. La artista tiene una larga trayectoria en el área de la producción cinematográfica y ha sido y seguirá siendo protagonista del crecimiento de este arte."

Leticia Tonos: Love Story 

"With her second feature film, the romantic tale Cristo Rey, director Leticia Tonos tackles the long, fraught relationship between the Dominican Republic and its neighbor Haiti. As Jonathan Ali explains, the filmmaker is no stranger to tough subjects."

Review: ‘Love Child’

"A daughter and father reunite after many years with unexpected consequences in Leticia Tonos' "Love Child," a small-scale, engagingly told debut whose charms outweigh its flaws."
