Lucciana Pascual is a Nicaraguan-American film director and interdisciplinary visual artist based in Brooklyn, New York. Her films have screened in festivals across Europe and the United States, including the SoHo International Film Festival where her debut short film, Hora Azul (2023), had its world premiere. In the past, she worked as creative director on the music videos of the Grammy-winning bands Bacilos and Morat (2021). With a particular interest in magical realism, Lucciana dares to adapt the underlying symbolism of her narratives with a surrealist visual approach.

Hora Azul

When a painter falls into his own canvas, he is stuck in a state of limbo. His muse must find a way to save him before the paint dries and he is trapped forever.

In Dante's Inferno, contrapasso is the punishment of souls "by a process either resembling or contrasting with the sin itself." As such, Hora Azul manifests the contrapasso of love through art.
