My Tender Matador

1986, Chile, in the lead-up to the guerilla attempt against dictator Pinochet’s life. An aging drag queen, living in a ramshackle but once luxurious abandoned apartment, is caught up in a risky clandestine operation after falling in love with a younger Mexican rebel. The portrait of a slow-burning and delicate bond between two outcasts, who struggle to escape from a feeling of entrapment and futility. A melancholic and low-key chant about people’s little stories devoured by the beast of history.
