Episode Details

(1985/Venezuela, 88 min., color, drama) Dir.: Fina Torres. Cast: Doris Wells, Daniela Silverio, Rafael Briceno, Mirta Borges. In Spanish with English subtitles.

Winner of the 1985 Golden Camera Award of the Cannes Film Festival for best first feature film, Oriana tells the story of three generations of Venezuelan women living in an isolated hacienda in rural Venezuela, whose lives are shaped by their family’s plantation. Now considered a classic of Latin American cinema, the film unfolds in the patterns of memory, moving from past to present with subtlety and grace.
