Girlfriends and Girlfriends (La amiga de mi amiga)

Aspiring filmmaker Zaida—played by director Zaida Carmona—has recently been dumped. Not one to sit at home and mope, she plunges herself into Barcelona’s lesbian singles pool while trying to work on her screenplay. Bouncing between various bars, shows, and parties on her search for a rebound rendezvous, Zaida meets Lara, her ex-girlfriend’s current girlfriend. And would you believe it, there’s a spark…

Paying playful homage to cinema’s most romantic philosopher Éric Rohmer, Carmona’s meta-textual debut feature is a cinephile’s dream, filled with knowing references and sharp observations on the very nature of storytelling. Above all, this is a film about love; a fun and frisky audit of the lesbian dating scene that effortlessly breathes queer life into the seemingly familiar format of the rom-com.

Content Warning: Nudity.

This film has been rated PG by BC Consumer Protection with an advisory for nudity, coarse language, and drug use.
