In this lecture, Sisy G6mez Pena will reflect on her work as a director and scriptwriter of short fiction and documentary films, within the context of a new generation of filmmakers born in Cuba after the 1990s. She will share a sample of her works, among them: • Sombra de luz, depicting ordinary Cuban life • Reflejos, awarded the UNETE Prize of the United Nations and selected by UNICEF, as part of the campaign against symbolic violence • Cuando truena, addressing the issue of internal migration and awarded the Support Prize of the Norwegian Embassy in Cuba, and the GO-Cuba Award of the World Cinema Amsterdam Festival • Sisy's Salvage, a short film that symbolically explores the power relationship between couples via sex, violence, and passion • The teaser of Habitacidn 7, her first feature film, a suspense thriller
