Eva is a strong-willed, restless 16-year-old girl who lives with her mother, her younger sister and their cat, but desperately wants to move in with her estranged father. Clinging onto him as he goes through a second adolescence, she balances between the tenderness and sensitivity of teenage life and the ruthlessness of the adult world. Bathed in a richly textured imagery and soaked in raw sensitivity, the film captures the thin line between love and hate, in a world where aggression and rage intertwined with the vertigo of female sexual awakening.

The drama I Have Electric Dreams, Valentina Maurel's feature debut, has already won fifteen awards, including Best Film, Best Director (Valentina Maurel), Best Actress (Daniela Marin Navarro), and Best Actor (Reinaldo Amien) in the International Competition at the 2022 Locarno IFF. IMDb web trailer
