2023 - 9th edition

For me, meeting Florenci was the equivalent of imagining that I could grow old. La Pastora is precisely about creating these new imaginaries. Through the personal experiences of both, La Pastora aims to provoke an earthquake in the dichotomous systems of sex-gender, cinematic genre, time and space, mistrusting traditional discourses and languages. This film, even though it deals with such complex issues, does not aim to intellectualise the experiences of its characters. Deep down, La Pastora is an ode to finding the safe space where one can simply be. No more.
