Film Info


Made for Madrid Pride 2017, Wonders Wander is a location-based mobi-web serial with four fictional episodes set in Madrid. Departing from the city’s Malasaña barrio, which became known as the Barrio de Maravillas (wonders) during the movida Madrileña countercultural movement of the late 1970s and 1980s, Wonders Wander takes the wonders out of Malasaña to explore the off-the-mainstream nouveau-queer generation that includes refugees, migrants, functional diversity, transfeminista, transfeminism, open family, subversive motherhoods, sustainable living, and the rise of auto-defense practices for self-empowerment. Directed by Shu Lea Cheang.
