Patient / Paciente   |   Sunday 11th September  4pm

AUSTRALIAN PREMIERE & SCREENING ONCE ONLY

PATIENT is the word that defines us as we follow medical instructions or have to stay calm while we wait. In Colombia, a country where the harsh health system requires its users to face absurd bureaucratic obstacles to access its services, Patient is not only the one who have the disease but also the one responsible for the daily struggle to ensure that his or her loved one receives all necessary needs.

Sara. A short film by Ingrid Pérez, Colombia, 2015. Presented by Bogotá Short Film Festival.

In a universe of teenagers, music and dance, in the discovery of identity and sexuality, Sara, without knowing, tries to find something unrecognisable to her… she tries to find herself.
