Their documentary project La Pastora (The Shepherdess) is the story of Florencio Pla Meseguer, an intersex maqui from the Sierra del Maestrazgo that was documented in the civil registry as a woman but began their transition upon fleeing into the mountains. La Pastora is a way of paying tribute to a forgotten figure mistreated by the Francoist dictatorship, of highlighting that we queer people have always been here and, lastly, another way of narrating the trans-masculine identity beyond the eyes of the city. Above all, La Pastora is a story about countryside, farmland, and farming, about loneliness and what it means to be a man or woman.
