Our Bodies Are Your Battlefields

Two trans women, Claudia and Violeta, fight against patriarchal violence in a divided Argentina.


Why watch this film?

Identity and body cannot be separated, and the body is the only true tool of struggle. These are the precepts on which 'Nuestros Cuerpos son sus Campos de Batalla', the Argentine documentary by director Isabelle Solas, winner of the Maguey Award for Best Film at the 2021 Guadalajara International Film Festival, is built. The documentary follows two trans activists, Claudia and Violeta, who led the fight against patriarchal oppression in Argentina, in a society divided between feminist progressivism and repressive conservatism (where in the world is this not happening?). 'Our Bodies Are Your Battlefields' palpably, but respectfully and authentically, portrays the reality of the trans community in Argentina, offering a universal lesson: that fighting is the only way to achieve the changes necessary to achieve a just society for all.
