“Cross Dreamers” is the first documentary in Argentina about crossdressing, a practice carried out mainly by men who, beyond their sexual orientation, wish to move through femininity. Directed by Soledad Velasco (screenwriter of the recent Netflix documentary series “ARA San Juan”), the film tells the story of Ornella, Mabel, Mirna and Paula, men who all their lives practiced cross-dressing without their family knowing. There are people who go and kick a ball, others who run 50 laps of a square, I like this,” the trailer tells us in one of the fragments, bringing us closer to the testimony of a protagonist. Through a personal and deep journey, the documentary will address the early “fascination with the feminine, the years of guilt and fear have led them to have a double life, but that world they had set up begins to crumble”, as the synopsis advances.
