Overview

Winner of countless international awards, including a Golden Bear for Best Actress at the Berlin Film Festival, The Heiresses is an evocative tale of female connection lost and found in contemporary Paraguay. Wealthy couple Chela and Chiquita have been together for over 30 years in Asunción. But when their mounting debts lead to Chiquita being imprisoned on fraud charges, Chela is forced to face a new reality – taking work as a taxi driver, starting a thrilling flirtation with a young woman and embarking on her own personal revolution.

Winner: Best Film & Best Actress, 68th Berlin International Film Festival
"A tickling, near-perfect tragicomedy ... The nuances are so fine you could slip them between adjacent atoms"
— Financial Times
"This subtle, beautifully acted and in many ways remarkable debut is an exciting discovery from an unexpected source"
— David Stratton, The Australian
"An evocative tale of class and female connection ... will resonate wherever you happen to live"
— Sandra Hall, The Sydney Morning Herald

Why You Should See This Film

A powerful slow-burn that stays with you long after the screen fades to black, The Heiresses is not just an intimate study of class and compassion but also a stunning star vehicle for the brilliant Ana Brun. Always framed with poignant subtlety by director Marcelo Martinessi, her performance is at once effortless and utterly heartbreaking.
