The movie might be seen on COSMO at 10:45 p.m. and will probably be accessible on demand on COSMO ON and on the channel’s web site and social networks. On this case, he has determined to focus exactly on how this drawback can have an effect on adolescents. 4 associates who research in a boarding college escape from their rooms to throw their very own get together within the gymnasium of the middle.

“We favored to position these ladies in a boarding college, an area from which they by no means depart, and provide the viewer a journey via a narrative that may undergo totally different levels,” says Ruiz de Lara in a phone dialog. The actresses who play these associates are Paula Losada, María Romanillos, Naira Lleó and María Morera, whereas Ariadna Gil collaborates taking part in the director of the institute. “It has a extra enjoyable half, of insurrection, one other of pressure, one other extra playful… We favored going via totally different feelings and states throughout the group, creating the sensation of friendship first, constructing that group and the way they’ve a great time in secret, after which making jealousy bloom over data that one in every of them would not know interpret and makes her really feel betrayed”.
The arrows within the title additionally play a elementary function within the quick, with a terrific symbolic cost. “They’re intently associated to Cupid, love, having a crush… However on the identical time, they’re a weapon that may do hurt. Documenting ourselves, we learn that some ladies mentioned that they didn’t interpret what their aggressors have been doing as sexist violence, however that they did it as a result of they beloved them.

These chargeable for the quick thought of two choices for him: inform the story with 4 feminine leads, as they lastly did, or do it with 4 boys. On this second case, one of many characters could be the aggressor, others would observe him with out questioning what had occurred, and one other would insurgent towards these attitudes. “It appears to us that that is much less counted, however the casting director, once we have been on this dilemma, advised me that we needed to give the main function to ladies, as a result of if the main function is taken away from them usually, we couldn’t do it additionally when it’s the protagonists. We understood that viewpoint, however as authors it appears to us that it was additionally essential that younger boys know that within the face of those attitudes they need to increase their voices. Because of manufacturing points we could not, however we imagined a diptych with these two tales, in two boarding colleges, which may work very properly”.
