The Open Reel represents now worldwide the Argentinian experimental production Heterophobia, third long project by Goyo Anchou (Safo).
Winner of the Best Film Award at last Buenos Aires Transterritorial Underground Film Festival, 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.
