Borrowing its title from a literary genre, the film acknowledges the indeterminacy of both fiction and the self. Field recordings made in New Zealand are heard as women speak with each other about motherhood, abortion, breakups and anxiety.
Fusing the personal and the collective, Laida Lertxundi’s quietly radical 16mm short links women’s private preoccupations to larger socio-political shifts. At once restless and languid, sunny Los Angeles and its vibrant multiculturalism are concretized by heartfelt anecdotes in English and Spanish.
