Beyond Belief

Description

In this session we explore how faith and belief enact upon the lives of Raymonde, Ana, Daniela, Alonso and Patricia. One way or another, the path which they have either chosen or been pushed to follow has been driven by belief – or perhaps the lack thereof. For Patricia there was never any doubt that becoming a midwife was her calling; this is the same conviction that Daniela’s mother felt when she wed her daughter to a Chilean prophet. For Ana, on the other hand, the death of her younger brother provoked a turbulent inner conflict that led her to question faith and her religious upbringing. Raymonde too, scrutinises her own belief, trying to figure out why she is still a virgin after all these years of abstinence.
