[ Yellow Sunglasses ]
1hr 38m I In competition I Spanish (English subtitles)
Directed by Iván Mora Manzano
After a breakup, Julia moves into a cold apartment surrounded by unpacked boxes, and deals with small, everyday conflicts of her solitude: spending the day in pajamas, working at mediocre jobs, eating excessively while attempting to fulfill her dream of starting a literary career. Julia finds a new beginning when she meets Enzo, a waiter with delusions of being a poet, and Alejo, an employee trying to star in a play. All three will live an intense connection, through which Julia will deal with her doubts of not knowing if she’ll ever be who she dreamt to become when she was younger. Yellow Sunglasses is a tragicomic look at Julia’s universe and her quest to find her own and intimate reinvention. A story whose background is a monotonous Andean city: Quito.
