Sinopsis por Julia Amigo

Con altas dosis de ingenio y una puesta en escena minimalista, el corto explora las ideas preconcebidas que tenemos sobre la intimidad en la adolescencia y cómo éstas chocan de frente contra la realidad cuando empezamos a poner en práctica nuestra sexualidad.

¿Qué sabemos sobre lo que significa besar a alguien antes de hacerlo?, ¿y si hemos tenido experiencias poco satisfactorias y probamos algo nuevo?

With high doses of ingenuity and a minimalist staging, the short explores the preconceptions we have about intimacy in adolescence and how they collide with reality when we begin to put our sexuality into practice.

 

What do we know about what it means to kiss someone before we do it? What if we have had unsatisfactory experiences and try something new?
