SYNOPSIS

Ana, Lore and Mile introduce us to the lives of young people, their concerns, yearnings, and fights. The fierce irruption of the new gender perspectives and the protagonist of women. Their time in high school towards adulthood reflects young people’s needs to express themselves and transform the world we live in. 

PROGRAM NOTE

In Argentina, the “Green Wave” women’s rights movement for the legalization of abortion gained momentum, and in Buenos Aires, fighting waves intensified. The fierce roar of women fighting for the legalization of abortion expands into a broader movement against various forms of gender discrimination. Ana, Lore, and Mile, three individuals at the Escuela Superior de Comercio Carlos Pellegrini (Carlos Pellegrini High School of Commerce) in Buenos Aires, take determined steps amidst these turbulent times.
Ana, the student council president, seeks to break away from the heteronormative education system through sex education meetings at school and faces a time of self-discovery concerning her gender identity. Lore hosts a radio show at school with the theme of menstruation and women’s liberation, and she finds her voice through the performing arts. Mile, a student counselor, advocates for student rights and represents the voices of students struggling with exams.
The film starts with different stories of three people in the same space, but their journeys converge with the goal of striving for a better life. Contempt to injustice draws the protagonists closer to the film’s frame, breaking down the barriers between the director and the protagonists. The movie gradually showcases numerous forms of resistance of the three protagonists, all Argentine women, and the director herself holding the camera. [KIM Woojeong, Cinefemme]
