Sinopsis por Julia Amigo

Una multitud baila al unísono, sacudida por la música tecno a 145 BPM, en una nave industrial. Entre la gente está Dustin, una joven transgénero, y su grupo: Felix, Juan y Raya, una mujer trans como ella. Conforme la noche avanza, la histeria colectiva se transforma en melancolía y la euforia en anhelo de ternura y conexión.

Si la vida es tránsito, el cuerpo es nuestro medio de transporte para el camino. Un cuerpo que baila, bebe, goza, duele y siente. Mientras amanece tras una noche de fiesta, la luz comienza a visibilizar realidades que permanecían veladas, como figuras borrosas que se mueven sigilosamente en la oscuridad de una pista de baile y de pronto se ven alcanzadas por un foco cegador.

A crowd dances in unison, shaken by techno music at 145 BPM, in an industrial warehouse. Among the people is Dustin, a young transgender woman, and her group: Felix, Juan and Raya, a trans woman like her. As the night progresses, mass hysteria transforms into melancholy and euphoria to longing for tenderness and connection.

 

If life is transit, the body is our means of transportation for the road. A body that dances, drinks, enjoys, hurts and feels. As dawn rises after a night of partying, the light begins to make visible realities that remained veiled, like blurred figures that move silently in the darkness of a dance floor and are suddenly struck by a blinding spotlight.
