Familia

LGBT 2019 97 min

My family is a night owl. Their lives always begin after noon: the first one to get up is my sister to prepare breakfast. Hours later my mother joins in and some time later my father, and that's when the real routine begins, which they repeat every afternoon and night. They only go out to provide themselves with food and other necessities. Every end of the year, on the eve of the holidays and my birthday, I travel for two weeks and live with them. Everything happens in the same house. Family is a claustrophobic, overwhelming film, where the city can only be seen from inside the house, through its windows.

Mi familia es noctámbula. Sus vidas comienzan siempre después del mediodía: la primera en levantarse es mi hermana para preparar el desayuno. Horas más tarde se suma mi mamá y tiempo después mi padre, y ahí comienza la verdadera rutina, que ellos repiten todas sus tardes y sus noches. Solo salen para proveerse de comida y otras necesidades. Cada fin de año, en vísperas de las fiestas y de mi cumpleaños, viajo dos semanas y convivo con ellos. Todo pasa en la misma casa. Familia es una película claustrofóbica, agobiante, donde la ciudad solo se ve desde adentro de la casa, a través de sus ventanas.
