San José, Costa Rica. A lot is going wrong in 16-year-old Eva’s family: her parents are divorced, her father throws tantrums and expresses himself in abusive language. The children live with their mother, but Eva still needs her father. Despite his violence, she can relate to her father’s wild, desolate world more than her mother’s. She clings to him as he goes through a second adolescence. In a world where aggression and anger are intertwined with the confusion of a burgeoning female sexuality, Tengo sueños eléctricos captures, with rich imagery and raw sensitivity, the thin line between love and hate.
