Synopsis: 42 Days focuses on the moment of confrontation with a terminal disease
and an attempt to process a personal tragedy. The film is a form of
visual diary, taking the viewers on a journey of realizations regarding the
filmmaker’s difficult family relations, gender and sexual identity, and lack
of control. It reflects on shame, guilt, and the experience of queerness in
a conservative, Catholic setting, as well as on the concepts of migration
and re-rooting. The filmmaker uses this deeply personal and moving film to
reflect on whether it’s possible to fully accept one’s fate.
