When Rubén Mendoza visited the Cannes Film Festival in search of funding for his first feature film, he started all his meetings with a video of a beggar shouting on camera: “French motherfuckers, we need money for the film, French motherfuckers, give us money for the movie, you bastards! “. Unaware of if he got the money, the truth is that Mendoza retains, years later, that same punk spirit that turns him into the most direct heir of Luis Ospina’s most irreverent and quarrelsome approach against the forms and policies that control the cinema worldwide. Señorita María, apparently a documentary about a man who dreams of God turning him into a woman, is also a hard but humane and fun blow on the forehead of the self-righteous audiences.
