Director Statement

Inspired by true events, OFFSIDE is a personal and intimate story that explores the passionate and turbulent characteristics of both Argentinean and Rave community & culture. As an immigrant, it is my love letter to my country Argentina. The characters Manu & Fabi are a reflection of my love and experience with the Rave community and the undying wish to live and cherish forever. Offside also explores universal themes like drug addiction, mental health and family trauma.
