Carla Simón, Dominga Sotomayor
Two young filmmakers record letters to each other in which they talk about cinema, their past and present relationship with their family, passing things on and what it means to become a mother. Their deeply personal yet far-reaching reflections—embodied in their delicate daily pictures—also manage to echo the political crisis emergency at national level.
