Todo, en fin, el silencio lo ocupaba is a film about the filming of a monologue from Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz’s poem First I Dream. It shows actress Jesusa Rodríguez patiently awaiting between takes as the director and crew decide shots, setup lights and move the camera around. The film is a meditation on filmmaking and its process.
