Best friends Silvia and Beba record their lives as they dance, make music, and face an uncertain immigration process


On the Texas border, best friends Silvia and Beba dance, read tarot, make music, and savor the long summer nights of their youth. Yet, their carefree facades conceal a fragile future as they’re stuck in an endless immigration process in a politically divided America. Much like their hometown, they inhabit two worlds without truly belonging to either.

In this vigorous documentary — honored with the Jury Grand Prix at the recent Berlinale Generation 14plus — Silvia and Beba wield the camera, turning its lens on themselves and their surroundings. The result is a montage of home footage that captures the uncertainty of their predicament while highlighting the unwavering joy they carry with them through life’s ups and downs.

This film will be followed by a Q&A.
