Directed by Monica Stambrini

A stylish, ultra-hip noir with shades of THELMA AND LOUISE and BOUND, BENZINA is the story of lovers Stella and Lenni who live in a remote petrol station. Their life is blissful except for the heavy influence of Lenni’s bourgeois mother that threatens to disrupt her life, their love and their desire to escape together. Until an accident – or maybe a crime – forces the pair to hit the road, testing their relationship to the limits. “This compelling first feature ignites the screen with a sexy brew of danger, action and unadulterated passion.” OutFest, Los Angeles
