Toms: The Complex World of Female Love in ThailandJanuary 23, 2015
Thailand's 'toms' (as in tomboys) inhabit a unique place on the gender spectrum.

DopaminaJune 1, 2019
At the end of the 70s and the early 80s, my parents linked up with left wing clandestine political groups in Cali. During that time, they had part in a revolution that promised great changes. I film the daily life of my parents, while at the same time making links between that political past and their break with that past once they decided to rise a family. I am 24 years old now. I’ve been living with friends for some time. I left my parent’s home because they could not accept my attraction to women, nor my lifestyle or my artist friends. Dopamine will show the way in which my parent’s ideals and mine are deeply related but also conflict with another. We will observe the struggles of my generation and the process of breaking up with older demands. The encounter of two generations.

What are the rules that determine how attraction and desire are set free? Glances, unexpected smiles, confiding in unknown women. Long cherished fantasies, intimate friendships and unexpected meetings. In Volume 2 of the Sexual Tension diptych, Marco Berger and Marcelo Mónaco take us on a journey through the twists and turns of female seduction: two guests of a hostel become roommates (and more); a keen shop assistant helps a woman uncertain about what dress to buy; the outset of a great passion between two girls during a picnic, even though one of them has a boyfriend. In the film we also find a conversation about Woody Allen between a waitress and a woman, which goes too far; and two high-class escorts who discover that they are attracted to each other, when they are in bed with a client.
