The Future Perfect
El Futuro Perfecto

Argentina | 2016 | 65’ | DCP | Color | Spanish, Putonghua | Group: B


Director: Nele Wohlatz


Xiaobin is 17 years old and does not speak a word of Spanish when she arrives in Argentina. But a few days later, she already has a new name, Beatriz, and finds a job at a Chinese supermarket. The teenage girl secretly saves up and enrolls at a language school. Having learnt how to “set up appointments” in a foreign language, Xiaobin sets a romantic date with an Indian customer at her workplace. Xiaobin starts to dwell in a world of uncertainty and wonder after being immersed in the stark reality of the conditional tense in her studies, envisaging a life. As her Spanish improves, the more Xiaobin becomes involved in the writing of the film. Xiaobin isn’t only rehearsing her role in The Perfect Future but also her new life on a foreign soil.
