In the tradition of tender coming-of-age tales such as Lucia Puenzo’s XXY and Celine Sciamma’s Tomboy, comes Julia Solomonoff’s The Last Summer of La Boyita, a sumptuously-shot ode to childhood summers past, executive produced by Pedro Almodovar.

A visually-stunning and beautifully-acted Argentinean drama, The Last Summer of the Boyita is a tender portrayal of the unexpected revelations that affect two children as they begin the transition to adolescence. 'La Boyita', a little bubble-shaped caravan, has always been a place of refuge, games and confessions for Jorgelina and her older sister Luciana. As Luciana enters puberty she begins to seek privacy and independence from her adoring sibling. Rather than tag along after her sister at the beach, Jorgelina decides to spend her summer holidays with her father in the country. There she develops a close friendship with Mario, a local farm boy and jockey. As the children explore the sun-drenched Pampas prairies and each other, they begin to question the similarities they share, and what makes them different.

"Captivating performances... perfectly captures the breezy freedom of a preadolecent world" - The London Lesbian & Gay Film Festival
