One in a Thousand

Las Mil y Una

Argentina, Germany




One in a Thousand will come to Katowice from Berlinale where it opened the Panorama section. The Argentinian director looks at teenagers who live in a shabby housing project. There are no bars, no pubs, no clubs, but it doesn’t mean there’s nothing to do there. The young hang around between the buildings, meet on the yards, and most importantly on the basketball court. There’s also dense atmosphere caused by hormones and desire. In the centre of the story there is a teenage girl who is fascinated – also in terms of sexuality – by her older girl friend.
