MUBI's take

Using a wealth of home-movie footage, Agustina Comedi’s feature debut is dedicated to unearthing the secrets of her father’s private and political life. The videos allow the filmmaker to experience the world through his eyes, uncovering the hardships faced by the queer community in 1970s Argentina.
