Window Boy Would Also Like to Have a Submarine

Chico Ventana También Quisera Tener un Submarino

Uruguay, Argentina, Brazil, Netherlands, Philippines 2020 Fiction cor 80 min.

On a cruiser in Patagonia, a crew member discovers a magical portal below deck, that leads to a young woman’s apartment in Montevideo, Uruguay. Meanwhile, Filipino peasants find an abandoned shed, which scares the villagers with its supernatural powers. These two stories interweave in a labyrinth: in its passageways and junctions, people meet, overlap, lose themselves. They observe each other with anxiety, scepticism and curiosity.
