Nele Wohlatz’s The Future Perfect (2017) follows the life of Xiaobin, a young woman from China who has moved to Buenos Aires, Argentina. This hybrid documentary-fiction film traces the real Xiaobin’s adjustment to her new new life in Buenos Aires and brings together years of fieldwork by Nele Wohlatz in Buenos Aires. Drawing on Nele and Xiaobin’s work together, this sincere and moving film shows us how difficult it can be sometimes but also how rewarding to find meaning in a new life.
