Brief Story from the Green Planet

New York Premiere

Dir. Santiago Loza, Argentina, Germany, Brazil, and Spain, 2019, 75 mins

In the eerie early moments of this mesmerizing Teddy Award winner, Tania—a transgender club performer—finds out that her grandmother has died. When she brings the depressed Daniela and the dancey Pedro to visit her late relative’s home, they discover that Tania’s grandmother spent her last years with a very special pal of her own: a small blue alien. Now the three friends must journey through rural Argentina to bring the alien back home before time runs out for the creature. Told through a genre-focused lens with a dry, Almodóvarian sense of humor, this bold tale of friendship fully satisfies the itch for a queer version of E.T. or THE GOONIES, while giving life to themes of self-discovery, embracing who you are, and the true meaning of home.

Writer: Santiago Loza
