Juana's Grammar

Juana Awad and Jorge Lozano

2003, 08:40 minutes, Colour, English/Spanish w/ subtitles


Created, directed, and edited by two of the most talented independent Latino filmmakers in Canada, Juana's Grammar is an ambitious exploration of diasporic identity that literally puts the body of a new generation of transfrontera women in this country on the cross-cultural epistemological battlefront. Structurally complex, technically daring, and with a wide emotional range, Awad and Lozano's striking experimental short draws freely upon a variety of global art traditions: from Chico Buarque's Brazilian compositions to Frida Kahlo's sketches to Heiner Müller's "Hamletmachine", without losing sight of their immediate social, political and cultural contexts.
