Documentary work in progress on the quinceañera parties. Traditional birthday parties of 15 years old of Latin America. In Spain, the different Latino migrant communities come together to continue this tradition and to bring big parties to their daughters.
Strongly heteronormative and patriarchal, these
festivals reflect a reality that seems far away from the strong social changes that are currently taking place.
However, by looking closely at the behavior of these teenagers at these celebrations, we see that their way of interact with each other is changing and that these parties are as distant from them as from us.
