From Friday 9th to Sunday 11th from 19.00 to 21.30, the TEA Tenerife Arts Space will screen "The Miseducation of Cameron Post" (2018) by Desiree Akhavan, which tells the story of a teenager whose family forces her to go to a gay conversion therapy centre. General admission is €4. Friends of TEA, €3.

The year is 1993. After the death of her parents, twelve-year old girl from Montana moves in with her aunt, a very conservative woman. Cameron Post (Chloë Grace Moretz) is a perfect girl in high school who is sent to a gay conversion therapy centre for teenagers “struggling with same-sex attraction” after being caught with a female companion in the back seat of a car on the night of the school dance. In the facility, Cameron is subject to ridiculous discipline which includes dubious methods and Christian rock songs. However, this environment also provides the teenager with a community she can identify with. For the first time, the protagonist connects with her peers and is able to find her place among the marginalised.
