Lucía Forner Segarra Delves Into the Dark Corners of Retribution in “BERTA,” Premiering at Fantasia Film Festival

“Berta” reveals the dark side of vengeance through feminist horror. Premiering at Fantasia Film Festival. #BERTAFilm



(Montreal, CANADA) – This July, the Fantasia International Film Festival is set to unveil a gripping addition to its illustrious lineup with the world premiere of “BERTA,” a new feminist horror short by the critically acclaimed Spanish filmmaker Lucía Forner Segarra. Following the successful footsteps of “MARTA” and “DANA,” Segarra completes her formidable trilogy that compellingly dissects themes of violence, vengeance, and introspection through a distinctly feminist lens.

Inside “BERTA”

Slated for its debut on Sunday, July 28th, 2024, “BERTA” introduces us to the eponymous character, played by the talented Nerea Barros. The film thrusts us into the complicated emotional tapestry of its protagonist, a woman who decides to confront her past tormentor. Berta’s confrontation is depicted with unorthodox methods that blur the moral lines between justice and revenge, making audiences ponder the depths one can go to achieve a sense of closure.

Lucía Forner Segarra shares her insights on the narrative, “’BERTA’ explores the critical act of confronting one’s monster; a figure that remains unscathed and guilt-free, living a life of normalcy after causing profound hurt. I crafted this narrative to include elements of dark humor amidst these severe themes to provide a cathartic release from the tension, a storytelling technique I find quite essential.”

A Festival Favorite

“BERTA” has already stirred significant excitement amongst festival goers and critics alike. Mitch Davis, the Artistic Director of the Fantasia International Film Festival, praised the film, “Lucía Forner Segarra continues to impress with her visionary approach and daring narrative choices. ‘BERTA’ not only captivates but enriches her already remarkable trilogy. The intertextual screams involving past characters DANA and MARTA were a stoke of genius, threading a deeper connection across her works.”

The film, with a runtime of 17 minutes, not only showcases Forner Segarra’s directorial prowess but also highlights an exceptional ensemble including Elías González and a cameo by Thais Blume, Segarra’s long-time muse. Behind the scenes, the film’s artistic essence is elevated by Claudia Rodríguez’s cinematography and the haunting original score by Joan Vilà.

What’s Next for “BERTA”?

As “BERTA” makes its mark at Fantasia, the film is poised for further acclaim with its potent storytelling and innovative execution. The short’s themes and visceral emotional resonance are likely to ignite discussions and resonate long after the festival lights dim.

For those eager for an early glimpse, the trailer for “BERTA” can be viewed here.


Connect with the Film

Fans and curious newcomers can connect with Lucía Forner Segarra and keep updated with “BERTA’s” journey through various platforms:

Lucía Forner Segarra’s “BERTA” promises not just to entertain but to provoke thought, stir emotions, and challenge societal norms. It’s a cinematic experience that dares to confront the unpleasant, making it a must-watch for those who dare to dive deep. Get ready, Montreal, for a film that bravely tackles the complex intersections of horror and feminism, all wrapped into a tightly knit, exhilarating 17-minute package.
