    • Synopsis
    • Nestor Perlongher was a poet, sociologist, and political activist in Argentina in the 70’s. He was one of the founders of the Homosexual Liberation Front, an organization which scandalized sectors of the right and made the macho left of the time feel uncomfortable. Through this figure, the documentary reconstructs a struggle that is all but unknown in Latin America: the struggle of one of the minorities forgotten by history. As in a collage, testimonies, letters, and archival and current images of those who were part of the movement alternate. With humor and nostalgia, with counterposed gazes, the intent is to reveal what was hidden: the history of homosexuals in years of change and repression.
