We Need To Talk (German title: Wir müssen reden) is a gay and lesbian short film by Jamie Cortez. It tells the story of Mateo and Victoria. They are a young Salvadorian straight couple like any other. Despite being in love, each one feels an inexplicable sentimental emptiness. The answer to that void will be discovered at Diego’s birthday party, where the course of their lives will change and a kiss will mark the history of both.
The film’s main characters, Mateo and Victoria, are played by César Durán and Giselle Calderón. The cast also includes Obed Landaverde (as Mauricio), Jeanet RodrÍguez (as Verónica), Walberto Galego (as Diego), Metzi Martel (as Mateo’s Mother), Tatiana Trejo (as Victoria’s Mother) among others.
