Brief Story From The Green Planet

Directed by Santiago Loza

Cast: Luis Soda, Paula Grinszpan, Romina Escobar

Tania, a trans woman who performs at discos in Buenos Aires and her two best friends – Pedro, who is gay and obsessed with voguing and Daniela, a waitress deeply depressed by her latest breakup – find themselves on a strange odyssey in this year’s Teddy Award winner at the Berlinale. When Tania receives word that her grandmother has passed away, she returns to her hometown with her two friends to find that she’s been left something much more unusual than settling an estate. Tania’s grandmother has charged her with the responsibility of returning her closest companion – a comatose alien they find in the refrigerator – safely to its origins. As the journey continues, each of the trio confronts their fears and demons while Tania finds herself supernaturally linked with the extraterrestrial. Director Loza’s unusual, metaphorical premise is surprisingly heartwarming and speaks to the power of chosen family as the trio sticks together through thick and thin.
