La Santa (The Blessed)

Short Film Chile 2012

In a small Chilean village the long-awaited procession day is approaching: the father of thirteen-year-old Maria has decided that it must be his daughter who plays the Virgin Mary. But things are strained between them. Even though Maria can't see the point of playing that role, her father refuses to back down. He says that this might cure her. Cure her of what? She doesn't think that peeing standing up like a boy is such a bad thing; quite the opposite. Screened at the Berlin Film Festival 2012, this short is a curious story about coming of age and hermaphroditism.
