Silvia and Beba know that the long summer nights of their youth won’t last forever. In 2019, at the ages of 18 and 21, they linger in places long familiar because immigration proceedings are stalled, and deportation is always looming. Between bars, drive-ins, acquaintances’ couches and the borderlands, they fight against the impositions of everyday life, for their community and their future. The dusty twilight offers them space for poetry and dreams, humor and creativity.
For the Berlinale Generation jury, the film is “a touching and subtle insight into the intimate moments of unforgettable characters whose self-determination and playfulness, in front of and behind the camera, are inspiring. Their actions, jokes, songs, laughs and bodies are political and so very necessary as a form of resistance.”
