April 07, 2016
...Miss Azuaje took the lead in the movie Sophia's Song which talks about domestic violence affecting Sophia, a dancer, dreamer, in loved with her boyfriend Charlie, who abuses her physically, emotionally and psychologically.
It's a story intended to create awareness, this can happen to anyone and without notice. "My character is that voicethat represents every women and men of all social classes that are afraid of talking, because they are ashamed, scared of what others may say, or for fear of breaking the family apart" Daniela said...
The young Venezuelan actress Daniela Azuaje continues succeding in the competitive world of acting in the city of Los Angeles, where she was just selected, after going through a complicated casting process to lead the short film Appalling, which describes the story of a woman who is surprised by an unexpected visitor when she tries to leave the parking lot of her workplace.
Spark is featured by big artists like Gabriel Tarantini, Carlos Montilla and Ileanna Simancas.
The student protests of 2014 have created social criticism like the ones shown in the short film directed by Juan Martinez Vera, Spark. An audiovisual project produced by the Sloan Foundation and the University of Southern California which included the participation of Venezuelan artists like Gabriel Tarantini, Carlos Montilla and Ileanna Simancas in the making.
Concerning this, Simancas stated that she decided to be part of this movie due to her concerns about the future of the country, even though she decided to leave Venezuela more than 20 years ago.
"I'm not a political woman, but a woman of justice, and if I see that speaking out loud I can make a change on what I think is just, then I do it. My voice is art, that's why I joined this team and this story, to be able to say outside the borders what's going on in it through the seventh art. It's a short film, which makes us be 'very short' in setting a full picture", the actress said.
We have to remember that during the student protests in February of 2014, technology played a leading role, something that with no doubt is a key aspect of the main focus of Spark.
"Can you imagine what would February 12th have been liked without the Internet? Without Twitter or Facebook? Without WhatsApp or Zello? It would have never been what it was. What we call Spark in the movie is based on FireChat, which was used in the protests of Hong Kong, at the same time the Venezuelan ones were happening. The same day that the opposing majority won in the National Assembly (NA), FireChat was the most downloaded app in the country", the Venezuelan explained.
Concerning the importance of the movie, she ensured that it is a way to take the message to the ones living abroad. "The moment the international community focused on Venezuela, things started to change. I think that was the big achievement of February 12th and the following days", she said.
The actress stated that even though she expects the movie to be projected in festivals in other countries, it will be present in the most important ones in the United States.
