ASTERISCO is an international film festival about sexual diversity. It is to celebrate the diverse and many ways of being and loving in the world; forming relationships and families, and living in equality and with respect for differences.
ASTERISCO is a film festival whose natural place is Argentina, where full citizenship includes everyone. It is country seen around the world as one that is at the vanguard of civil rights, with laws covering same-sex marriage, gender identity and access to assisted fertilization. These are laws that without restricting the rights of anyone, have widened the recognition for sectors of society that have been historically marginalized, such as the lesbian, gay, trans, bisexual and intersexual population. These are laws that in order to be fully applied require profound cultural changes and it is there that cultural and artistic expression can help break down symbolic boundaries that still separate the minority from the majority in our society.
