El Niño PezDirector: Lucía Puenzo
Lala, a teenager from the most exclusive suburban neighbourhood in Buenos Aires is in love with the Guayi, the 20-year-old Payaguayan maid working at her place. They dream of living together in Paraguay, at the shores of lake Ypoá. The murder of Lala’s father rushes their plans.
This is the starting point that spurs the escape through the highway that connects the North of Buenos Aires with Paraguay. While Lala waits to be reunited with her lover in Ypoá by reconstructing her past (the mystery surrounding her pregnancy and the legend of a fish child who guides the drowned to the bottom of the lake), the Guayi is detained in a minors institute. She turns out to be hiding a crime from long ago.
Her proyect XXY has been awarded with the Grand Prix from Cannes Film Festival 2007.
