In an Argentina divided between a deep conservatism and an unprecedented momentum in feminism, the film delves into the political journey and intimate lives of Claudia and Violeta, trans women who identify as transvestites. The fight they lead with their comrades against the patriarchal violence is visceral and embodied. Convinced of their role at the center of an ongoing revolution that intersects with so many struggles, in defiance of the old world, they intensify their energy to invent a new present, to love and stay alive.
Director and camerawoman based in Bordeaux, France. She also works in the field of live performance and street art. Her first film, Inventaire, launched the main lines of an aesthetic that lingers in neglected places, seeking to understand how the living unfolds there. The desire to film the body as a field of political invention has become central to her work in recent years.
