About the Filmmaker:
Dark and surreal comedies, Thalia Drori Ramirez’s films are uncensored female fantasies, focusing on revenge, fear and horror. Like the group hug that turns into an opportunity to cop a feel, her work embraces mainstream Hollywood’s comforting and sensuous form, while it simultaneously takes advantage of the innocence of that form by telling non-traditional stories and by using unorthodox
content. Within the context of film as the coquettish seductress, her work reveals the female inner world.

Cineastas de Granada:
In 2005, Thalia Drori Ramirez founded Cineastas de Granada, a video production program for teenage girls in Granada, Nicaragua. The free-of-charge classes offer young women an opportunity to learn film writing, directing, camera and editing, to gain access to the world of media, and to put their stories out into the world.
