A Venezuelan-Colombian co-production with a Cuban director, this powerful film delivers a truly universal message: the importance of self-determination of our bodies and identities, and especially in the case of those born intersex.

Ariel is a young dressmaker whose first intimate encounter with a boy is an extremely painful experience; something about her body seems odd. Tenaciously digging into her past, Ariel discovers she was indeed born different and underwent surgery to be raised as a girl. Battling vehement opposition from her mother, and discrimination at work, Ariel embarks on a traumatic but liberating journey to find understanding, forgiveness and freedom.

Peppered with flashbacks, artfully overlapping sound and image, and group therapy testimonies, this is a sensitive and beautifully crafted film.

Short film screening alongside this feature film: Carne

Rare, medium rare, medium, medium well, and well done. Through intimate and personal stories, five women share their real experiences in relation to the body, from childhood to old age. Through the form and texture of real materials such as paint, watercolour, clay, 35mm film and virtual image decomposition, these women are represented in animation by female animators to highlight the perverse way in which society looks at them.
