Sana Que Sana explores the process of healing and emerging from a lifetime of betrayal. It documents a woman discovering her husband's lifelong secret amid his accelerating dementia, his absolution. This short film navigates death and honor in the context of religion, culture, shame, and devotion in Colombia. Sana Que Sana utilizes both documentary and interpretive elements to illustrate the cyclical nature of forgiveness, while offering the underlying question: who is seeking the healing? Approached from a perspective two generations removed, Sana Que Sana layers intimate voice-over interviews with the filmmaker's grandmother over 16mm and 35mm footage shot in both Cali, Colombia and New York City.
