Aldo Garay

2015 | 79 minutes | Uruguay, Chile, Nicaragua

New York Premiere 

Observing more than two decades of Stephania’s life, award-winning Uruguayan filmmaker Aldo Garay delivers the personal story of one woman that resonates on a universal level. Born in Nicaragua and adopted by Uruguayan leftists, Stephania, then known as Roberto, later became a Sandinista activist, fighting for political, social, and educational reform. Forced to leave the country, she ended up in Uruguay, where 20 years later she scrapes together a meager existence guarding parked cars on the streets of Montevideo. The New Man is a rich character study of a woman, whose identity is as equally shaped by poverty, war, and communist theory as it is by sexual politics, facing all that life throws at her with grace and humor.
