Santiago Caicedo’s vibrant adaptation of Powerpaola’s acclaimed graphic novel not only proves wholly faithful to Paola’s autobiography but also instantly relatable to anyone who’s weathered the trials of adolescence. As her formative year’s shuttle Paola between Ecuador and Chile, Caicedo traces her tentative first steps towards independence, adult intimacy and artistic expression. And while the animation may be monochromatic, it captures a brilliant kaleidoscope of experiences. Expect to be dazzled.
