The Awakening of the Ants

Natalia Sanabria produces the poster art for Costa Rican film El Despertar De Las Hormigas.

The title of the movie translates as 'The Awakening of the Ants' and is a metaphor for women describing a force that keeps everything together but also a silent presence making it difficult for her to express her physical or mental needs.  The director asked Natalia to use the figures' hair to convey femininity and create a bond between the Mother and her two Daughters, whilst using the outward gaze and her sensitive drawing skills to evoke vulnerability.
