La Vida era eso

An unusual friendship is forged between two Spanish women from different generations in a hospital room in Belgium. María is a long-term resident of her adopted nation, an arrival during the waves of emigration of the 60s and 70s; Verónica has arrived only recently, fleeing the current precariousness of Spain’s economy. The interaction with this free-spirited young woman sparks something long dormant in María and inspires a road trip to the south of Spain. What begins as a journey in search of Verónica’s roots becomes an opportunity for María to question certain principles on which she had based her life. This debut feature is an engaging story about later life blossoming, in the remarkable setting of Cabo de Gata, Almería.

Short film screening alongside this feature film: La Primavera siempre vuelve

It is spring and grandma Margara teaches her four grandchildren how to plant in little flowerpots. As the grow up, three of them decide to fly away from the family patio and explore the world. Years pass, grandma gets older and those who left are still present, in their own way… but never quite like those that stayed. People may return, or not. But spring will always come back.
