Magdalena has decided that she wants to return to her hometown of León to celebrate her birthday and invites some members of the Barcelona collective I-Vaginarium to join her. As they traverse the Spanish countryside, the group – including group leader Tina, brutally honest former sex-worker Yolanda and the more conservative and quiet Cristina – begin to open up to one another, sharing their stories. In Sediments, director Adrián Silvestre allows his subjects to be their authentic selves onscreen. There are dance parties, drugs, arguments, flirtatious brunches and birthday celebrations. But at the heart of this film lies an honest portrayal of the varied lived experiences of trans women that, sadly, still feels so rare in cinema.
