A little bit of “Showgirls”, a little taste of Yeşilçam cinema, and a little air of early-Almodóvar cheekiness – this should be the most fitting definition for the genuine formula of this lively made-in-Mexico melodrama. Valentina, who goes on stage at a night club, is as flamboyant as her flatmate Joana is reclusive. These two trans women’s lives change as the star performer position becomes vacant in the night club where Valentina works. Getting one step closer to the star status for which she has been waiting for years, Valentina suddenly gets confronted with a new rival: La Madonna, the new lover of the club’s merciless boss. This rivalry makes Valentina become merciless against her flatmate Joana as well. Impudently camp and possessing the spirit of punk-rock, “Lonely Stars” is a melodrama that entertains its audience non-stop with its rhythm that never slows down.
Each memory tells an intimate story; each collection presents us with the reality of containing an intimate story as well. The collection is akin to a whole in which many memories and stories of the artist, the viewer, and the collector are brought together. At the heart of a collection is memory, nurtured from the past and projecting into the future.
