[eltdf_dropcaps type=”normal” color=”” background_color=””]A[/eltdf_dropcaps]fter receiving a warm tribute and the Silver Cross for her impeccable career, premiere actress Isela Vega will offer a Masterclass where she will take on the details of her life on the stage and beyond.
Known as La Grande Dame of Mexican cinema, Isela Vega shares the experiences that made her into a magnificent actress, a fierce political figure and a symbol of freedom. Her participation in a great number of films, acclaimed television series and soap operas have kept her presence on the screen current in national and international screens, making her shine with the splendor of the most nourished life experience in the artistic medium.
Her crisp and firm performances have earned her great acclaim as well as a Silver Ariel for Best Supporting Actress in 2000 for Luis Estrada’s La ley de Herodes; as well as two Ariels for Best Supporting Actress, the first in 2007 for Javier “Fox” Patron’s Fuera del cielo and the second in 2015 por Catalina Aguilar Mastretta’s Las horas contigo. She also won two ACE Awards for Best Supporting Actress, first in 2001 for La ley de Herodes, and then in 2010 for Arráncame la Vida, directed by Roberto Sneider. In 2011 she was nominated for a Silver Goddess for Best Supporting Actress in Crónicas Chilangas (2009).
Isela Vega is a symbol of talent, work and inexhaustible beauty; her life and her career are a reflection that she has always spoken, sung, danced, acted and loved the way she has wanted. In a medium in which men wrote, directed and handled all of cinema, Isela has always been true to herself in spite of the roles imagined for women being definitively limited. Isela Vega found a formula for transforming vulnerability into power, from posing nude to protesting in the streets. When in the 70’s she was a proud rebel and a symbol for sexual freedom, she would later be remembered because of Elena Poniatowska for her political participation from the Mexican Left. Isela Vega has been good when she has had to be good and, as she would say, when she has felt like it.
