Day 4: short films and girls in love

Two short films today are dealing with upcoming feelings of young girls for other young girls, which are leading to big confusions…

In the swedish short “Min Homosyster”,Cleo is spending warm sunny days with her sister and her “cool” girlfriend Gabbi. She is thinking about who she is on love with and why she´s always so nervous when her friend Sadira calls.

“La prima sueca” tells the story of Cata, who is waiting for her 15th birthday to come. Her cousin Klara, who is visiting, seems to be quite strange to her.

Day 2: Mexico!

To establish a theme-block at the second day of Berlinale, I want to introduce to you two films who are about people and places in Mexico.

First we have a film called “Casa Roshell”. A film about an event location in Mexico City, where everyone can be who they like to be. A kind of utopian space for people, who usually don´t have the possibility to express freely their sexuality.

The second film is a documentary about the singer Chavela Vargas, who lived all her life openly gay.  The women with the impressive voice had her career highlights in the 60´s and 90´s and turned women´s heads everywhere she went. A beautiful portrait about a far more beautiful and interesting woman. For more informations please look below! Have a nice day you all! Continue reading Day 2: Mexico!
