Pablo Llorca | Spain | 2017 | 65 min. | O.V. Spanish with English subtitles
The legendary Mario Gas and his daughter Miranda star in this humanist comedy by Pablo Llorca, an immersion in a working class area of Madrid, its neighborhood life and its community ties, on the fringes of the haste of the big city. Along with Elena, a photographer for a magazine, we end up in La Fortuna, where Elena takes Ana after helping her when she feels unwell after a marathon. There, in the bar, we’ll get to know Ana’s world, her father, a likable sponger, and her long-suffering mother, and we’ll accompany her on her road to independence.
