Vierte Welle Filmfestival presents:

Latinx Pride

Lemebel (OmeU)

Documentary, Chile/Colombia 2019, 96 min, Screenwriter: Joanna Reposi Garibaldi, Executive Producer: Paz Urrutia, Paula Sáenz-Laguna, Joanna Reposi Garibaldi, Producer: Paula Sáenz-Laguna, Co-Producer: Señal Colombia, Assistant Director: Lissette Orozco, Director of Photography: Niles Atallah, Sound: Roberto Espinoza, Editing: Titi Viera-Gallo Chadwick, Original Soundtrack: Camilo Salinas, Archival Research: Matías Valdivia, Texts: Manuel Maira


Pedro Lemebel, writer, visual artist and pioneer of the Queer movement in Latin America, shook up conservative Chilean society during Pinochet’s dictatorship in the 1980s. Body, blood and fire were protagonists in his work that he attempted to perpetuate in the last eight years of his life in a film he was never able to see finished.
In an intimate and poetic journey through his risky performances dealing with homosexuality and human rights, “Lemebel” portrays a culmination of yearning immortality.

Joanna Reposi Garibaldi

Her short film, “Sam & Dave” (2002) was premiered at the Institute of Contemporary Art in London and selected at the 9th Sheffield Int’l Documentary Film Festival. “Locos del Alma” (2003), her first feature film received Special Mention from the Jury in FIDOCS and was selected in Crètiel Film Femme Festival, France (2005), among others. In 2017 she made the short film “Matriz” (2017) which was exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Santiago de Chile and in the Biennal of Image and Movement of Buenos Aires (2018). “Lemebel”, her second feature film has obtained important international awards (Teddy Award for best Documentary in Berlinale (2019) and has been selected at festivals in more than twenty countries. She is currently developing her next film.

“I met Pedro in 1999 when I was working on a video art piece dealing with “El Manifiesto”, one of his most emblematic texts. Since that project we formed a friendship based on the respect we both shared for our respective work. In 2007, we decided to make a film together and I began filming him in personal spaces. That closeness also permitted me to film his final days when he was fighting throat cancer, ultimately causing him to lose his voice and finally his life.
When we thought about the film the hours would fly by speaking about our lives or what we were passionate about at that moment, always over beers and with music in the background. I was moved by his many facets, especially his humor and lucidity.
Being with him was to share in the warmth he transmitted to his intimate friends, as well as the vertigo of totally unpredictable encounters. Pedro’s aesthetic incited me to reinterpret the archives of his life and to create a series of urban interventions in pursuit of a cinematographic harmony in tone with his work.
Among the various projects that he left incomplete was this very film. To finish it was to conclude a process that we started together and that always sought to amplify his voice.”

Latinx Pride

11–25 July

Vierte Welle Filmfestival präsentiert: Latinx Pride

Welcome to Latinx Pride, a Vierte Welle Film Festival side event dedicated to celebrating and promoting diversity, inclusion and gender equality in the film industry.
In commemoration of Pride Month, we continue to be a vital space to highlight the talents of Latin American filmmakers who challenge established norms and explore new narratives that reflect their vision on sexual diversity in all its forms.

On July 11, 18 and 25 our audience will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in a captivating selection of feature-length documentaries and an exhibition of short films that address issues of the LGBTQ+ community in Latin America.

We hope you enjoy the diversity of stories we have to offer and that you join us in this first edition of Latinx Pride!

Vierte Welle Film Festival is based in Berlin and, since 2019, aims to give visibility to Queer artists and FLINTA* to raise awareness about gender inequality, the fight against discrimination, and the prevention of prejudices through citizen participation. Through fiction, documentary, and experimental audiovisual projects in short format. The work team consists of FLINTA* people with a migrant background and feminist activists from various organizations based in Berlin.

“Vierte Welle” is created as a safe space for viewing and discussion of audiovisual content of a philosophical, political, economic, social, ecological and cultural nature, whether academic or not.

The festival is organized and exists thanks to Karne Kunst in collaboration with Sorora e.V. and Xochicuicatl e.V.
