A film by Hernán Jabes
(Venezuela, 2022, 108 min.)

1 show for this event

In contemporary Venezuela, riven by deep political and social crises, four upper middle-class teenagers carelessly experiment with drugs, group sex and free love, until one of the girls, Eli, is brutally murdered. The film picks up the story sixteen years later, on 2033. Alain, one of the four teenagers, has an affair with journalist Santiago, who investigates Eli’s murder and discovers shocking revelations about the case. A tension-filled thriller with a dark, decadent atmosphere that recalls Gaspar Noé’s movies, in which a cynical, unrestrained youth that has left innocence behind comes to terms with its own ghosts.

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.
