Our Bodies Are Your Battlefields
Isabelle Solas
Documentary : 101' / Feminism, Politics, Trans, Women, Activism, Community

In an Argentina divided between a deep conservatism and an unprecedented momentum in feminism, the film delves into the political journey and intimate lives of Claudia and Violeta. Trans women who identify as transvestites, the fight they lead with their comrades against the patriarchal violence is visceral and embodied. Convinced of their roles at the center of an ongoing revolution that intersects with so many struggles, in defiance of the old world, they redouble their energy to invent a new present, to love and stay alive.
