Snap

Felipe Elgueta, Ananké Pereira

Synopsis

“We’ve learned to communicate with one another in 15 seconds.” Private life is put on public display with the hope of disappearing after 24 hours, but this short film creates a field of resistance and existence. “SNAP” rescues these ephemeral instants – from social media – of the lives of Alonso, Anna Balmánica, and Alexa, characters from the LGBTI+ community, in internal social conflict, accompanying them in their intimacy and celebrating their differences.
