Brief Story from the Green Planet

October 3, 2019 @ 9:30 pm - 10:55 pm

Free - £8
A white man with short dark hair and a yellow jacket, white woman with long blonde hair and a red and white striped jacket, and Latina woman with long dark hair and luminous pink jacket stand in a field looking directly at the camera.

Three childhood friends in Buenos Aires are stuck in a rut. Gutsy trans performer Tania is disillusioned with her profession, club kid Pedro can only connect via dancing, and depressed waitress Daniela has given up on finding love. Their lives are turned upside down when Tania’s grandmother dies, leaving behind a secret. She lived with an extra-terrestrial companion and it is now Tania’s duty to return the creature to its home. The three set out across the countryside of Argentina on a journey that will test their faith in themselves and one another. Told through a mixture of magic and sobering realism, this poetic fable is an examination of selfhood, friendship, and what it means to be ‘other.’

With an introduction by Argentinean comedian and translator, AB Silvera.
