Jesusito de mi vida

Jesús, a six-year-old child wakes up in the middle of the night with an urgent need to pee. But his fear of the dark stops him from crossing the hallway that leads to the bathroom. Influenced by his mother's advice, he asks God for help in the hope that some kind of miracle might happen.

Film notes

The roots of Dear Child Jesus (Jesusito de mi vida) are some memories of my childhood. Nevertheless, with this short film I didn’t pretend to relive the past, but to build a story that raised universal themes. Dear Child Jesus deals with the loss of innocence, the relationship between mother and child, religion and the fear of darkness. And it tries to do it with its own voice, away from genres and fashion. Introducing young actor Guillermo Estrella (who later would work in Biutiful, the last film by Alejandro González Iñárritu), and featuring another great performance by Goya Nominee María Vázquez. All that concentrated in ten minutes of footage, where there is still room for a revision of The Miracle of Marcelino (Ladislao Vajda, 1955) and a tribute to Bergman, Buñuel or Erice.
