One in a Thousand


Iris, a teenage girl, struggles to experience first love in the community of Las Mil.

"Panorama ‘One in a Thousand’ Opening Points to Berlin DNA..."

"Navas’ sensual movie also has a subtle yet powerful social message..."

"A potent, defiant feature."


Set in a community of project houses, “One in a Thousand” explores deep friendship and sexual awakening. When Iris (17) meets Renata (20), a young woman with a tough past, she feels immediately attracted to her. She will have to overcome her fears and struggle with her insecurities in order to experience first love. A story full of tenderness in a very hostile environment where desire adapts many forms in the darkness, and gossip can turn into a hostile weapon.
