directed by Iliana Estañol & Johanna Lietha
Three teenage couples. One society.
Through three intersecting stories, LOVECUT tells about identity, love and sexuality in a digital, rapid changing society that offers many possibilities, as well as extreme challenges. Tinder, identity, lies, porn and six rebellious teenagers trying to find meaning in the turmoil. What we observe is a snapshot, an excerpt from their lives and their love stories. An attempt to better understand the bold youth of our time as well as the society we live in.
