Review

Bolivia is a relatively unknown country in terms of films. Bolivia is perhaps known as the country where Ernesto Che Gueverra fought his guerilla war. Even so, in this country, just as in any other country all over the world, teenagers struggle with their sexuality. The director of this film, Rodrigo Bellott, filmed this film in digital, and experimented by dividing the film into two. If Abel Gance experimented with dividing the film in three ways horizontally with the film , Rodrigo Bellot divides the film into two vertically. He filmed the same scene with two cameras, and through shrewd editing, lets the audience see the same scene from two different perspectives. Each chapter is connected by a spatial link ? Burger King ? where the same characters occupy the same space and time. The film asks viewers the relationship between violence in a patriarchical society and virginity, the sex trade, and sexual violence. A young, macho man who tries to dominate his girlfriend with violence goes to the United States. There, he becomes a victim of a gang rape by a group of young men. Although in Bolivia, as a macho man, he was able to suppress the other sex, in U.S., he is just another foreigner from an underdeveloped country. A girl who has sex without any protection becomes pregnant and keeps vomiting, and a 15 year old who has just had sex with an old prostitute also vomits. The film tells us this is all due to the oppressive sexual culture. The film shows us the consequences of being sexually dependent: that state in which one does not independently choose/encounter sexuality.
