The firsr movies and videos of Colombian Caribbean women were produced in Baranquilla, evoked an explicit female subjectivity and were exhibited just at the beginning of XXI century. They are fictions that account for the most intimate and coflicting desires of women, talk about the recovering of home as a space of expresión and scout the body as a new place of representation. They reveal a postfeminist emotional architecture, more dramatic and ironic than political ( McRobbie, 2004; Alice , 1996), constructed from the representation of the emotions and the experiences of women living in Barranquilla , who are now replaced in the center of narratives . In that way, (Rita goes to the supermarket, Jessica Sofia Mitrani,2000), (The date, Alana Farrah,2004) and Unknown (Julieta Maria,2001) are essential Works for the recognition of the emotional memories and the aesthetic experiences of women , Little studied in Colombia cinema. They reveal something scheming: an intimacy in a constant crisis, wich makes the extraordinary a facto of everyday life,which melodramatized their own reality. (Catala,2009).
