Synopsis by Mark Deming
A deluded woman is torn between her family and the man she loves in this dark drama from Mexican filmmaker Jaime Humberto Hermosillo. Aurora (Maria Rojo) is a middle-aged woman whose obsessive love for famous singer Andres (Rogelio Guerra) led to a brief tryst that left her with child. Many years later, her son Mauricio (Tizoc Arroyo), an aspiring filmmaker, is suffering from deep depression, and Aurora travels to be near him after he attempts suicide. While Aurora's love for Andres has not faded with time, despite his lack of interest in her, the realities of Mauricio's condition force her to look to her son's needs. When Mauricio asks his mother to play the leading role in his first film, she agrees, but the story she wants to put on videotape is not Mauricio's screenplay, but an open letter to Andres. Dos Auroras (aka Two Auroras) received its American premier at the 2005 Chicago Film Festival.
