Sinopsis por Julia Amigo

Una adolescente observa a su alrededor en las duchas de un vestuario femenino. La diversidad es abrumadora, y esa mirada que antes dirigía a otras se vuelve hacia si misma cuando la chica llega a casa. Nina, por otro lado, observa a su vez a Joana. Entre ambas las miradas parecen contener mundos. La poderosa energía visual de esta historia la convirtió en una de las sorpresas del último Festival de Berlín.

Joana y Nina parecen preguntarse, cada una a su modo, si mujer se nace o se hace; o, visto de otro modo, qué significa ser mujer en un mundo que pone tantas expectativas en nosotras, condicionando incluso la experiencia de nuestra propia carne. Enfrentando estereotipos, miedos y rechazos, ambas emprenden un viaje en que la música, los desayunos compartidos y el baile frenético en la habitación se convierten en estandartes de la libertad.

A teenage girl looks around her in the showers of a women's locker room. The diversity is overwhelming, and that look that she used to give to others turns to herself when the girl gets home. Nina, on the other hand, observes Joana as well. Between them the looks seem to contain worlds. The powerful visual energy of this story made it one of the surprises at the last Berlin Festival.

 

Joana and Nina seem to wonder, each in her own way, if a woman is born or made; Or, seen in another way, what does it mean to be a woman in a world that places so many expectations on us, even conditioning the experience of our own flesh. Facing stereotypes, fears and rejections, the two embark on a journey in which music, shared breakfasts and frenetic dancing in the bedroom become banners of freedom.
