A synopsis prior to the release of the film stated:

"Caotica Ana is the story-journey of Ana during four years of her life, from 18 to 22. A countdown, 10, 9, 8, 7... until 0, like in hypnosis, through which Ana proves that she does not live alone, that her existence seems like a continuation of other lives of young women who died in a tragic way, all at the age of 22, and who live in the abyss of her unconscious memory. This is her chaos. Ana is the princess and the monster of this feminist fable against the tyranny of man."[1][2]

Production and filming

Caotica Ana is Medem's first new narrative film since his 2001 film Sex and Lucia, and his follow-up to the controversial documentary La pelota vasca. As with Lucía, this film has been shot in HD, using the Sony HDC-950, the same camera used by Robert Rodriguez to film his Sin City. Ana is a co-production of Medem's own production company Alicia Produce and Sogecine S.A.. Medem's regular composer Alberto Iglesias could not score the film. Filmed in New York, Arizona, Madrid, and the Canary and Balearic islands.

This film, and story, was an attempt by director Medem to cope with the deep depression that he was suffering after the tragic accident of his younger sister, Ana, who was killed in a car accident on the 28th of April 2001 when it was heading towards the wine town of Cariñena, Zaragoza, where an expo of her wax paintings was going to take place. Her other brother, Alvaro, was driving the car. In her memory, Julio has a daughter named after her. As he said: "It is an attempt to escape from my own memories without achieving it as she did".
