Los travestis tambien lloran

Synopsis. « Everybody cries – the rich, the poor, men and women, and travestites. Travestites cry too. Only they cry more than others ». Romina.

Director Sebastiano d’Ayala Valva spent over two years with the characters to witness the reality and the lives of these so-called “she-males” – people we know so little about. « Geographically, their world is so close but at the same time so far-off from the life of the average person, even in the inner city. What I discovered were individuals whose daily lives and difficulties made up a series of stories that just needed to be told”. »

Among them, we meet Mia, a.k.a. “Mujeron” – or the “big woman”.  A former professional boxer who chose prostitution as a means to support his family back home.
