Synopsis: Luz leaves for Italy in search of a better future, leaving her two year-old son in the care of her family back in Colombia. Her European dream, however, starts to wither away as she becomes the victim of a series of misfortunes. Luz takes on her new social status and starts from scratch working as a cleaner. She unexpectedly meets Fran, a person so extraordinary that makes her overcome all her preconceptions. Together, they decide to be the owners of their lives: the entire world is before them and Rome at their feet.

The premiere took place at the Sevilla European Film Festival (2016), winning the FIPRESCI Award “for the sensitive realistic representation of issues of immigration, gender, identity and contemporary conditions in Europe”.

The film has also won the Rizoma de Cine Prize (Madrid), the award for Best Feature Film and best actress at the Queer Lisboa, Best Direction and Best Actress at Zinegoak (Bilbao International Film Festival), Best Actress at Lesgaicinemad (Madrid International Film Festival) and the Audience Award at Sicilia Queer.

Los Objetos Amorosos

“The Objects of Love is directed with great confidence and assuredness by first time feature director, Adrian Silvestre. The developing story of a woman alone in the city and the key scenes of attraction, lovemaking, bickering, jealousy and deep comradery between the two women are all movingly and convincingly enacted, and the two lead actresses – excellent casting decisions both -share an obvious chemistry. It is refreshing to see a film carried by two strong female leads”.

James B. Evans, FIPRESCI
