Pre-Screening Intro / Por Sus Propios Ojos

Intro This screening will be introduced by Nuria Triana Toribio, Senior Lecturer in Spanish Cinema at The University of Manchester.


For her college thesis, film student Alicia is making a documentary about women related to prisoners in the local jail. The only problem is no one is willing to be interviewed on camera. In comes Elsa, a desperate woman whose son has recently been arrested for petty crime. Elsa will grant Alicia an interview, only if she visits Luis in jail. But when Alicia makes the visit, her world collapses.
