Rome It meant many things to Mexico because of the theme it dealt with, but also because it was the first film that managed to win an Oscar for its country. Directed by Alfonso Cuaron, recreated a well-to-do neighborhood in Mexico City where the life of a family that had several domestic workers who helped with what to do daily was recounted. That’s how we met Yalitza Aparicio, who played one of these women. It was her debut as an actress and she managed to be nominated for the highest award in the industry for best leading actress. The Oscar was elusive but throughout the process prior to delivery, aparicio was the promotional face of the film by Netflix in the media and festivals.

The film showed us the Amerindian population that inhabits Mexican soil and that many times does not enjoy the same possibilities as the rest of the population. The impact of the film was immense and its story in black and white further increased those contrasts that Cuaron decided to show

But Yalitza’s fledgling career, which had started off on the right foot, failed to take off. Only now is his name once again linked to a strong fiction. This is the Mexican version of the Argentinean anthology series Killer women, that can be seen in the new premium streaming service of Univision Television called ViX+.

The fiction recreated in each episode real cases of women who had committed a murder. Yalitza will be the protagonist of one of these chapters that began to be recorded in June.

“The new generations and fans of Killer women will be able to enjoy a revamped version of this popular franchise. With a risky proposal, the series tells each story from the point of view of those who lived through extreme situations that led them to commit murder,” he said. Vincenzo GratteriSenior Vice President of Development ViX+.

The Spanish writer alice moonwill be the screenwriter of this new installment that will have 8 episodes that takes the book as its starting point Killer women of Marisa Grinstein. With stories inspired by real life, the protagonists of this series did not have a simple, calm or happy life. They faced violent partners, manipulative parents, hostile bosses, and humiliating situations. Without the resources or the psychological help, they reached the limit of their strength in tragic situations from which they had no way to escape, and when prison or death were less terrifying to continue enduring.

Pepe Castro, Carlos Garcia Agraz Y Ana Lorena Perez-Rios will be the directors of each of the episodes that have the executive production of Francisco Casasus, Rafael Cuadros Y Luis Luisillo Miguel.

Let’s remember that aparicio he only participated in a short film in 2021 called daughters of witches and that this year the premiere of the film is scheduled Presences. But far from the opportunities that would arise for any budding actress who won an Oscar nomination in her first appearance in a film, the chances for Yalitza have not been that many.
