A girl’s band


"I changed the bass for the camera,” says Marilina Giménez, who until 2013 and for six years played in the band Yilet with two girlfriends. That is the framework in which her autobiographical and choral documentary film was conceived. Its gender perspective confronts several dilemmas: Which is the women’s role in the current music scene? What happens when women make the music they choose? What happens when their bodies on stage are sensual and aggressive? A night tour through Buenos Aires, where different voices are part of "A Girl's Band".Come and dance.
