LAS MIL Y UNA (ONE IN THOUSAND)
Argentina / Germany. 2020. 120 '. Fiction. VOSTF.
Director and screenplay: Clarisa Navas
With: Sofía Cabrera, Ana Carolina Garcia, Mauricio Vila

Iris is 17 and takes each day as it comes. When she meets the very cool Renata, her life changes abruptly. As her friends explore their sexuality, Iris finds herself confronted with new emotions and growing rumors that she ignores.

Presented at the opening of the Panorama section in Berlin, this lesbian coming-of-age offers an incisive and uncompromising look at the passage from adolescence to adulthood. Everything changes for Iris, a shy and sporty young girl, when the enigmatic Renata makes her appearance in the Corrientes district. But if this city in northern Argentina seems to be a place where adolescents can freely express their sexuality, discrimination and violence are no less felt, outside and within the queer community. In the wake of the cinema-verite, Las mil y una captures these questions in all their complexity and paradox.
