Our take

Few films have fought the “male gaze” quite like this one. Argentine director Albertina Carri responds to cinema’s systemic patriarchy with this political erotica: a lesbian and feminist road movie that proudly subverts paradigms of beauty, sexuality, and representation with radical determination.
