Directed by Josué Méndez, a Harvard Film School graduate, Gods (2008) places the viewer in a tumultous relationship between new family and old and all of the process and personalities involved.
Gods is an ironic story about the classic ebb and flow of wealth versus poverty. The film follows Elisa, a poor yet pretty and polished young woman who captures the heart of an older, wealthier man. Her excitement for a better life and nicer things becomes sidelined by her two new stepchildren, Diego and Andria. Diego and his father brood over the family business and Andria brushes off responsibility for endless partying and boy-hopping.
As Diego lusts after his sister’s romantic affection while simultaneously trying to break her of her bad habits, Elisa is caught in her dream-families chaotic whirlwind.
