Our Opening Night film on Fri 6 Mar set the bar high with a powerful first feature from Catalan writer/director Belén Funes, starring Greta Fernández as a painfully lonely young woman navigating a toxic family situation, with her errant parent played by her real life father Eduard Fernández.

In a working-class Barcelona neighbourhood, 22-year-old Sara valiantly battles to bring up her infant son and look after her troubled little brother, with an extremely precarious home and job situation. Insecurity reigns for Sara, and the arrival of her deeply unreliable father Manuel only further destabilises her world. This is an emotionally engaging story that draws comparisons with the stark realism of the Dardenne brothers or Ken Loach, and lives up to all its accolades and awards.
