directed by Maurício López Fernández
It has been many years since Elena last saw her family. When she returns home to the conservative countryside for her father’s funeral, she is not the quiet young man they had known. Shockwaves ripple throughout the house and silences are filled with unspoken questions as Elena and her mother struggle to see past their differences, while the rest of the household threatens to spin out of control. The striking cinematography and trans actress Daniela Vega’s extraordinary lead performance build an emotional atmosphere for director Maurício López Fernández’s absorbing first feature film.
