Virus Tropical

Virus Tropical

A teenage girl that grows up in-between two countries, next to her father, who is a priest, her “psychic” mother, and her two wild sisters, struggles for her freedom from an early age – thus learning the power of the feminist vision to dissolve stereotypes and small or bigger crises. A masterful adaptation of one of Latin America’s most famous graphic novels (for which the cartoonist Paola Gaviria produced approx. 5,000 drawings), which teaches us to see all the incredible colors that are hidden in this fascinating, complex, black-and-white world.
