Sediments, dir. Adrián Silvestre, Spain 2021, 89 min., Spanish with English subtitles
Director Adrián Silvestre joins us to introduce his joyful and moving film about the close-knit kinship shared by members of Barcelona’s trans community.
Lena, a trans woman living in Barcelona, decides to celebrate her birthday in her rural hometown in the province of León and invites a group of friends, fellow members of the I-Vaginarium collective, to travel with her for the weekend. So begins a road movie with a
difference, as these six disparate trans women find a place to articulate their hopes, fears and experiences.
Capturing the honesty of their conversations with humour and empathy in a rural setting that lends the film a weekend-in-the-country feel, Silvestre observes the dynamics and tensions within the group and the women’s individual personalities and layers, offering a space to consider how they each relate to the land – navigating the challenges of the present and preparing for whatever the future might bring.
