Storyline

In 1933 political activist and champion for sexual freedom Aurora Rodriguez killed her Utopian 'project' and brilliant young daughter Hildegart. Selectively bred and educated by Aurora to become the world's first truly free woman to lead humanity into a new era, Aurora could bear finding out that Hildegart wanted independence, rather than following the fate her mother systematically raised her to follow. On the surface, Hildegart's strength and confidence was unbreakable; she published books and essays about taboo subjects and sexual topics, gained power at the leader of the young Socialist party. and started the World League for Sexual Reform in Spain. This is a film about the human propensity to kill the thing that it loves the most. Written by Anonymous

Young Spanish activist is brutally murdered by her psychopathic mother.
22 June 2013 | by (Davis, CA, United States) – See all my reviews

Sheila Pye is a young, very talented artist who expresses herself through many different mediums. The Red Virgin caught my attention because Ivana Baquero and Maribel Verdu are both wonderful actresses. Their combined performance in "El Laberinto del Fauno" gave me very high expectations. The two are perfect to tell the story of Hildegart Rodríguez Carballeira as Ivana is also from Spain. Pyes short film was very beautiful to watch, however I would have preferred to hear the dialog, especially the two monologues, in Spanish. After all, the two actresses are native Spanish speakers. The dialog overall sounded very forced and mumbled at times. My absolute favorite scene was when Hildegart was undressing in front of the bird cage; it was a very sensual moment. The lighting and costume design were nearly perfect. I would have given this short film an 8 out of 10 if the spoken language was Spanish.
