Con qué la lavaré? (2004)


A transvestite prostitute returns home after a night's work in the worst neighborhoods of the city of Valencia. While undressing, he remind everyone of his customers that night, while listening to the interpretation of the anonymous sixteenth-century song that gives name to short.
This short film is an animation film on 'queer' or transgender themes. It is a marvelous production in which images mix with humor and originality. The music (from the 16th century) sung by an outstanding countertenor brings an emotional dimension which makes this short film a touching and brilliant production in queer cinematography. The film won the Teddy Award for short films at the 54th International Filmfestival in Berlin (2004).
