Marilyn

Directed by Martín Rodríguez Redondo

Screenplay: Martín Rodríguez Redondo

Marcos, a seventeen-year-old farm worker, discovers his sexuality in a hostile environment. Nicknamed Marilyn by other teenagers in town, he becomes the target both of human desire and discrimination. Marcos feels pushed into a corner more and more.

Marilyn is his first feature film as director. It won the CICAE Art Cinema Award at the “Cine en Construcción” section of Toulouse Cinélatino Rencontres Festival, and the Sin Sistema prize at the Work in Progress section of BAL (Buenos Aires Independent Film Festival). It also won INCAA’s First Feature Film Prize, INCAA-CNCA Co-Production Support Fund (Argentina-Chile), and Ibermedia’s Film Co-Production Support Fund. It has participated at the Oaxaca Film Script Lab (Mexico), the San Sebastián Film Festival Co-Production Forum (Spain), the SANFIC Santiago Industry Lab, and Australab at FICValdivia (both in Chile).
