A powerful story of a woman trying to have agency for her own life
7 November 2020 | by vampire_hounddogSee all my reviews

In Buenos Aries, Alanis is a prostitute (Sofia Gala Castiglione) kicked out of her apartment for soliciting and moves into her nearby aunt's (Dana Basso) with her 1 year-old son. She continues to struggle to get by and is drawn back into prostitution.

Anahi Berneri's film observes the events as a voyeur that makes no judgements and displays the survival of someone who lives under the radar on the margins of society. Yet, all the way through she still tries to cling on to having agency of her own decisions, despite what others think or what society tells her.
