- Fact sheet
“Maria Conversa” shows the creative process of actress Blanca Portillo to interpret Mary of Nazareth in the play “Mary’s Will”. The film follows the protagonist in a road that has different stops: its adaptation to the directions of Villaronga, the dialog with the script and the work of adaptation to the scenography and the costumes. However, in addition to showing us the process of construction and staging, the film follows the emotional process faced by the actress, her difficulties, and realizations; the subtle birth of the character of Mary in herself.
