When Juana (Marisol Agostina Irigoyen) starts a new high school, she’s worried about fitting in. But more importantly, she wants to have sex. When her new classmates launch a campaign to protest the school’s lack of adequate sex education, Juana inadvertently finds herself becoming the face of the movement. Over six perfectly-formed 12-minute episodes, director María Belén Poncio, along with her co-director and co-writer Rosario Perazolo Masjoan, explore identity, sexuality and disability with humour, refreshing frankness and an impressive fluency in the language of consent, pleasure and bodily autonomy. 4 Feet High is radically inclusive, sex-positive coming-of-age story featuring the kind of protagonist we rarely see on screen.
