The Future Perfect


Xiaobin recently arrived in Argentina from China. She tries on names in Spanish as if she were trying on costumes, to see which suits her. She tries out new gestures to give her new role a body. She speaks the language although she doesn’t master it until she has convinced herself about her speech. Meanwhile, she uses the film as a rehearsal room to try out her future in Buenos Aires.
