Tania Hernández Velasco

Descended from peasants, weavers, bricklayers, clouds, priestesses, men-who-always-keep-their-promises, fish & flowers. Sometimes she makes movies, sometimes she does things she’s uncertain what to call and keeps them sheltered beneath the soil, waiting to grow.

Her first full-feature film,  Titixe (2018), which she directed, produced, photographed and edited, has been selected for more than 40 international festivals, and has received multiple awards and mentions. The film was included in the list published by Sector Cine in 2020 with the 100 Best Mexican Films in History, which was collated from a wide survey of the Mexican film critics community.
