Brief Story From The Green Planet

Winner of Best LGBT-themed Feature of Teddy Award at the 2019 Berlin International Film Festival


This movie tells the wonderful story of four unconventional characters: a queer girl, a party animal, a girl deeply affected by a painful breakup and - last but not least - a mysterious alien …

2019年第69届柏林电影节,由阿根廷导演Santiago Loza指导的《绿色星球简史》夺得泰迪熊最佳剧情长片奖。和《再见 南屏晚钟》里的邪教、同妻、两代代沟元素相比较,《绿色星球简史》讲述的显然不是一个“接地气”的酷儿故事,其浓烈的悬疑元素也一步步将观众引入未知的结局。

Brief Story from the Green Planet, directed by the Argentine film director SANTIAGO Loza, won the Teddy Award for best LGBTQ-themed feature movie at the 2019 Berlin International Film Festival. Compared with elements presented in A Dog barking at the Moon, like the concept of cult, gay men’s wife (tongqi) and intergenerational misunderstandings, Brief Story from the Green Planet is a less ‘down-to-earth’ queer film, portraying situations outside the scope of our daily lives. Brace yourself for this unexpected thriller!

We are delighted to showcase this wonderful film at our upcoming Spring Special Screening, in 2019.


*First awarded in 1987, the “Teddy Award“ honors films dealing with LGBT related topics. It is considered as one of the most influential queer films awards of the world.
