The streets of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, in the Spanish archipelago of the Canary Islands, have been decked out to receive the filming of “The Mother”, with a whole display of media awaiting its protagonist, Jennifer López .

The space, fenced and secured, houses around twenty trucks that have turned part of the city center into one of the sets for the Netflix production, with elements that suggest a large tropical garden in the style of Havana, where it takes place. part of the plot.

From the central balcony of the Literary Cabinet, a building that is emerging as the center of the action, the director Niki Caro was accompanied by a group of technicians who surveyed the area, in which various support structures for the cameras were being built.

On the other side of the security fences and while several black nine-seater vans entered the new movie set, the curious were approaching, expectantly.

“Has she arrived yet?” They asked each other, until the singer and actress was seen before her followers, who shouted when they recognized her while she greeted part of the production team.

The film, with the collaboration of the Canarian production company Sur Film, is directed by the New Zealand director Niki Caro, with a script by Misha Green and Andrea Berloff, and has a cast made up of the actors Gael García Bernal, Joseph Fiennes, Omari Hardwick, Paul Raci and Lucy Paez, who plays Jennifer Lopez’s daughter.

Jennifer Lopez plays a hit woman who tries to escape from dangerous assailants, struggling and dealing with the dangers of coming out of anonymity to protect her daughter from the risks that lie in wait for them and whom she had to give up to save her from a dangerous gang. .

After recording last morning in the San Juan neighborhood, the activity has moved to the center of the capital in a shoot that was scheduled for January.

On January 9, just a few days after the arrival of the artists, the recording had to be suspended due to a massive contagion on the set that disrupted the filming plans of “The Mother”, which coincided with the wave of the omicron variant on this Spanish island.

One of the trucks on the set, with a sign that reads “Covid”, pretends that this will not happen again, with a specific device within the shooting area to prevent any contagion. In fact, the workers will have to perform a PCR.

As it got dark, the workers were called to try to keep as quiet as possible to start making movies.

In two squares and four streets, just a few hours of frenetic work turned this point into a small city, with fully equipped luxury caravans, four-wheeled portable toilets and a whole shield of fences, a meeting place for small groups of followers of the artist and tourists who came to the set to ask “Who’s coming?”.
