Heterophobia.

Heterophobia traces the quick fall into hell of Mariano. A young gay man who, having been first raped and then rejected by an heterosexual friend with whom he had vague romantic illusions, has a sentimental journey from initial guilt and messianistic will of redemption, through flaring spite, up through castrating rage, before arriving to a final conclusion: that the the only possible action against patriarchy is revolution.

During the 2000s, he does several shortfilms and works as a programmer for the Mar del Plata Int’l Film Festival, in charge of the Argentinian independent production.
