My Mexican Bretzel is a silent film subtitled with excerpts from – so we are told – the diary of Vivian Barrett and made by the homespun films of her husband, a wealthy industrialist, between the ‘40s and ‘60s of last century. Vivian finds a book written by the guru Paravadin Kanvar Kharjappali and is fascinated by it: “Lies are just another way of telling the truth. The desire to believe is the hand of the man hanging from a
cliff and clinging to the only stone that would seem to save him.”
Nuria Giménez – (Barcelona, Spain, 1976) – studied Journalism, International Relations and Documentary Filmmaking. She has lived in Berlin, Paris and London doing different types of jobs, most of them unrelated to cinema or to each other. In the last decade, she has extended her knowledge thanks to seminars and master classes of several filmmakers she admires. Her first short film, Kafeneio, was presented at DocumentaMadrid 2017 and MIDBO 2017. My Mexican Bretzel is her first feature film.
