The Last Summer of the Boyita

The Last Summer of the Boyita

film-roll Argentina, France, Spain / Color / 86' / 2009

La Boyita is a caravan and a magical hiding place, a refuge for Jorgelina, a curious girl on the passage from childhood to adolescence. Going on holiday to the countryside with her father, she meets Mario, who has already started working on his family’s ranch. One day, returning from a horse ride, she discovers a bloodstain on Mario’s saddle and another one on his trousers. Jorgelina tries to understand, but Mario, ashamed and insecure, has no clue of why he is not like the other boys. This revelation, instead of separating them, brings the two friends even closer together…
