Con amigas así
Presenting a twisted and at once comic view of friendship, Con amigas así will have viewers reflecting on human relationships and the continued prevalence of machismo even amongst women in our society.
Four friends get together to celebrate one of their birthdays in a world of black humour that reveals deep resentment in friendships that initially seem so close. Paola, a troubled psychiatrist, pregnant Angélica, the prudent and happily-married Camila and the fun friend Isabel conflict over themes including children, age and personal traumas – bringing up envy, cynicism and bitterness.
This intimate and realistic insight into hidden feelings and the fragility of friendship brings to light the difficult role of women in the modern world and the explosive nature of close relationships.
Casa E, Carrera 24 #41-69. Thursdays to Saturdays at 8pm. Until November 5. Tickets $38,500.
El vuelo de Ana

Ascuas y azufre
