PRISONER OF SOCIETY
What does it mean to be a stranger in your own home and country? This film is an intimate journey into the world and mind of a young transgender woman, trapped between her personal desire for freedom and the traditional expectations of her parents that threaten their unity.
A man and a woman meet in a waiting room and immediately get closer to each other. They commence a game that gradually gets more and more ferocious. Their faces resemble masks while shapes slowly lose their meaning.
This film is rooted in the desire to offer its character a real place in the world. To invent this new space, the director describes her return to an abandoned house. The film looks at the shape of this failure, which lies in front of the audience.
THE MAIL LADY
Suspecting the mail lady is delivering love letters to his mother, a tenacious young boy seeks help from an unhinged neighbour in an attempt to ease tensions at home.
Ramona lives with her husband, with whom she barely talks, and works in a cannery run by a despot manager. Faced with the challenges presented by her daily routine, Ramona tries to take refuge in the relationship that unites her with her daughter and granddaughter.
A mother looks for her son in a hospital bed. She finds her daughter instead. Among shores and tides, blue leaks from the core.
