Playback / Playback. Ensayo De Una Despedida
  • Year2019
  • Duration14 min

In Córdoba, far from the Argentinian capital, the end of a military regime promises a spring that lasts only a short while. “La Delpi” is the only survivor of a group of transgender women and drag queen friends who began to die of AIDS in the late 80s. In a Catholic and conservative city, the Kalas Group made their weapons and trenches out of improvised dresses and playbacks. Today the images of a unique and unknown footage are not only a farewell letter, but also a manifesto of friendship. A letter from the past to all the friends in any future.
