Synopsis

A quiet middle class world of good intentions begins to crumble when fourteen-year-old Miriam meets her internet boyfriend. While her family and friends prepare for her a traditional fifteen birthday party, Miriam doesn’t know how to explain that her boyfriend is black.

Hyviä tarkoitusperiä täynnä oleva keskiluokkainen maailma alkaa murentua kun 14-vuotias Miriam tapaa nettipoikaystävänsä. Sillä aikaa kun hänen perheensä ja ystävänsä valmistelevat hänelle perinteistä 15-vuotisjuhlaa, Miriam ei tiedä miten selittää, että hänen poikaystävänsä on musta.

Un tranquilo mundo de clase media comienza a desmoronarse cuando Miriam, de catorce años, conoce a su novio de internet. Mientras su familia y amigos le preparan una tradicional fiesta de quince años, Miriam no sabe cómo explicar que su novio es negro.

O mundo quieto e cheio de boas intenções de uma classe média começa a desmoronar quando Miriam, de 14 anos, conhece seu namorado virtual. Enquanto a família e os amigos de Miriam preparam sua festa tradicional de quinze anos, Miriam pensa em que como dizer que seu namorado é negro.

Expert review

“None of the characters in Miriam Miente speak the word “racism”, but racism oozes in the conversations about beauty and love; in the moments of uncomfortable silence and abrupt changes in conversation.”

– Leonardo Custódio
