Six trans women travel to a small town in León where they will explore what connects them as a group. An engaging and fun story about empathy, individuality, and the need to belong.


Six trans women travel to a small town in León where they will explore unusual landscapes, as well as the ins and outs of their own personalities. Looking for answers about what connects them as a group, they will learn to deal with their differences.

Sediments is an engaging and fun story about empathy, individuality, and the need to belong. It is the present radiography of a collective, which looks into the past and projects itself into the future, celebrating the extraordinary possibility of being unique and unrepeatable.


"Spanish filmmaker Adrián Silvestre's gorgeous second feature follows six trans women on a road trip in the Spanish countryside. The women range in age and experience, from students to retired sex workers, and the intergenerational rapport leads to fascinating conversations that are as hilarious as they are incisive. Led by the subjects, Silvestre includes a fair bit of nudity in the film, a provocative choice that leads to a joyous reclamation of the trans body onscreen." — Jude Dry, IndieWire

"The filmmaker's sensitivity make Sediments one of the most intense, tender and emotional moments of the annual harvest of our best non-fiction cinema." — Carlos Loureda, Fotogramas

"The daily life of six people who only seek to be themselves, without ties, without clichés. Without a doubt one of the most interesting non-fiction films of this season." — Alfonso Rivera, Cineuropa
