Carmen is 16. She lives with her mother and brother on the edge of Berlin. Her father, a Puerto Rican soldier, abandoned the family, and all that’s left to remind them of him is a handful of exotic postcards and his record collection of Caribbean and Hawaiian music. Carmen talks thoughtfully about her daily life and her dreams. Replete in lavish make-up and flamboyant robes, she acts out her fantasies in front of the camera. Inspired by the camp aesthetics of American underground films, Elfi Mikesch’s documentary celebrates, without fear of pathos or bombast, a teenager’s “small escape” from the restrictions and routines of everyday life.
