Melisa and her friends debate on what means to be a woman. But these stories contrast to the director and protagonist’s, reconstructed from the personal archive footage that distort the genre’s mandates and prohibitions with humor.

Competition / Argentine Official Competition
Premier latinoamericana

On her first film, Melisa Liebenthal throws in her personal archive of pictures and videos from childhood and adolescence, in order to review it from the present day through a gender perspective. With a good sense of humour, the film features an acute and critical view of the behaviours and relationships within an close group of friends, as well as their temporary looks, songs and choreographies, their love stories and heartbreaks. In that teenage world, the director stresses the way in which a certain notion of women forms should seemingly be met according to a certain social expectation. With grace, wit, and a very playful spirit, this autobiographical piece sheds a light on the way those role models doesn’t necessary match personal and more genuine evolutions. VB
