One in a Thousand review – hoop dreams, hanging out and hoping
Clarisa Navas’s film is a confident, visually engaging romance conjuring a world of teenage waiting and wantingThis is an LGBT urban pastoral from film-maker Clarisa Navas, set in a tough barrio in Corrientes province, north-eastern Argentina.

Iris is obsessed with basketball and spends most of her days loafing around, shooting hoops, talking with her brother and cousins, and chatting with the neighbourhood kids, gay and straight. Then she chances across a charismatic older woman called Renata (Ana Carolina García), who has an elegantly wasted image; Renata has mysteriously been abroad for a while and apparently dances at a local club called Traumatic, where she appears to be on the fringe of sex work.

Every day since we failed O-level English and Mr Cane said we would grow up to be nothing more than a daily laughing stock, we have been trying to prove the buzz-killing fool wrong. And after nearly a quarter of a century of being forced to bash out words for a boss who throws them back in our face upon completion while screaming at us that they’re in the wrong order, boy did we fail. It feels good getting that off our chest but there is a reason we’re telling you this. Yes, Germany v France! Continue reading...
