Q&A with Anahí Berneri. Ticket holders are invited to an Opening Night reception, courtesy of Cinema Tropical, following the screening.
Winner of the Best Director and Best Actress awards at the San Sebastian Film Festival, the fifth feature by Argentinian filmmaker Anahí Berneri is a poignant and compelling drama that portrays three days in the life of a young Buenos Aires mother and sex worker struggling to survive. Featuring a potent performance by Sofía Gala Castiglione in the title role (alongside her real-life son Dante), the film offers an unsentimental and non-moralizing take on a self-determined woman trying to live her unapologetic life while facing contradictory prostitution laws that are intended to protect her but often do the opposite.
