The distinguished Minister is desperately trying to reestablish a sense of normalcy. For this reason, he has given the instruction to return to school in the so-called mixed modality: half in-person, half online. Against this scenario, a young elementary school teacher (interpreted by actress Carolina Arredondo) stars in a hilarious -and desperate- monologue that portrays the immense task and the wear and tear that hundreds of teachers are facing in this pandemic.
"Just like teachers, artists have had to adapt and search a different way to do their work, which essentially depends on human connections and presence. Recording the monologue turned out to be a very similar experience to that of teaching a hybrid class; a half scenic, half audiovisual experiment, which allowed us to reflect on the multiple difficulties faced by teachers even before the pandemic: job burnout and adverse working conditions," says director Ronald Heim.
