Rosario Rodríguez de la Serna

Donoso, Eliana Jara

Details about the life of Rosario Rodríguez de la Serna are scarce. We know only that she played a small acting role in Juro no volver a amar/I Swear I Won’t Love Again (1925). After this experience, she founded her own film company, Rosario Film, in order to direct Malditas sean las mujeres/Damned Be the Women (1925), a loose adaptation of a novel by Ibo Alfaro. In the film, a young boy, a victim of passion, falls into despair because of unrequited love and ends up killing himself. The film had limited commercial success and was exhibited at several locations in the country.
