Why set the film in Argentina?
Formerly an insult (and still can be used as such) but was a reclaiming of the term by initally gay men but then other gender activists.
New Queer Cinema is a term first coined by the B. Ruby Rich in Sight & Sound magazine in 1992 to define and describe a movement in queer-themed independent filmmaking in the early 1990s.
Not the same as gay cinema (although linked) - based on non-hetronormative models, ideas of freedom.
