Atlas / Guadalupe Gaona, Ignacio Masllorens

Sinopsis

Cuqui Jakob recalls anecdotes of her grandfather Christofredo Jakob, an important German neurobiologist hired by the Argentine government as head of the laboratory of the National Hospital of Alienated to modernize its mental institutions at the beginning of the 20th century. In this return to the hospital, lost photographic collections are discovered, reminiscent of the old cabinets of curiosities: stuffed animals, brain slices, mountains, explorers, hundreds of portraits of female patients. In a disruptive way, Kookie and her daughter reappear, contradicting each other with their stories that lead the film to the mountaintops. Mother and daughter become rivals, and thus the discourse of scientific positivism, madness and the myth of a condor flying over the ruined archive.

El rostro de la medusa – EN

The Face of the Jellyfish / Melisa Liebenthal

Sinopsis

Marina’s face suddenly changed. As in a Kafka-esque nightmare, in her early thirties, her face ceased to be what it was. Who is she now? Through Marina’s story, the film delves into a reflection around the meaning of the face, emblem of our identity and nerve center of how we connect with others, human or non-human. Can we be somebody beyond our face, beyond our image?

Las hijas del fuego – EN

The Daughters Of The Fire / Albertina Carri

Sinopsis

Three women meet by chance at the very end of the world and start a life-changing polyamorous journey that takes them back to their home cities as different persons, maybe the persons they had always wanted to be. Subjects that suffer when facing the established order, the irreversible passion and the Utopian quality of a single love, unwind as they search for new ways of relating, far from possession and pain as the inevitable end to a love that fits no canon. The journey along the routes and through time turn, in The daughters of the fire, into pure joy, rivers of pleasure and fun. Violeta tells us through notes and thoughts about a possible film she wants to make, the adventures of the daughters of fire: a band devoted to accompanying women in the search for their own erotica and for a way of being in a world that does not recognize the voluptuousness of detachment.

¡Caigan las rosas! – EN

White Roses Fall / Albertina Carri

Sinopsis

Violeta, is a young film director who once made, together with a group of friends, an amateur lesbian porn film. Due to its big success, she is now hired to make a mainstream porn film. Her ideas about gender systems -cinematographic and sexual- do not allow her to carry out the shooting and she escapes from the set. From southern Buenos Aires she leaves with her actress friends for the warm Sao Paulo, finding new forms of storytelling along the way. The group of women travellers mutates according to the geography and their emotions, until the Atlantic Ocean, surrounded by jungle, prevails over all worldly extravagance. An unknown territory welcomes them voluptuously. Cinema becomes an intention of another time and life the only discovery.
