A film by Aseneth Suarez Ruiz
(Colombia, 2021, 80 min.)

1 show for this event

At the age of thirteen, Aseneth discovers that Lilia, who she had hitherto believed to be her aunt, is actually her mother’s partner. In her second feature film, the director shares with us her biography and explores her relationship with her mother Clara: now that Aseneth desires to become a mother too, she wants to retrace her mother’s past and her decisions through a dialogue made up of direct questions and revelations. An intimate and sincere documentary that shows us a relationship between a mother and a daughter through a tender and loving exchange between generations.

In case of bad weather, the event will be hosted at the DAMSLab Auditorium in Piazzetta Pier Paolo Pasolini 5/b. Follow the updates on Gender Bender’s social networks.
