Mi vacío y yo at the 2023 Ibero-American Film Showcase

The Ibero-American Cultural Attachés Association presents its annual film showcase, with films from 19 countries, including the Spanish film “Mi Vacío y Yo.”

The Ibero-American Cultural Attachés Association presents the 2023 Ibero-American Film Showcase, coming back with an in-person edition highlighting the topic of diversity. This special program will offer free screenings of Ibero-American movies in different venues in D.C.

My Emptiness and I

  • Directed by Adrián Silvestre, Spain, 2022, 98 minutes.
  • Original title: Mi Vacío y Yo.
  • In Spanish with English subtitles. Watch trailer.

Raphi from France fantasizes about romances with princes and about starting a traditional family. But in reality she works in a call centre in Barcelona, struggles with at times embarrassing dates, and is diagnosed by her therapist as having gender dysphoria.

This film follows this trans woman through this confusing yet valuable period as she makes her transition, as well as in her everyday life. She talks candidly with colleagues, queer friends, and the men she meets through apps. Despite all the advice she receives, it turns out that mostly time and experience will help her embrace her place in this world.
