UK Premiere/ Las Mujeres de mi casa

Directed by Valentina Reyes

This quietly moving drama sees three generations of women living under the same roof, an old house that is full of memories but destined to be swept up in the urban redevelopment of Santiago de Chile. Nothing stays the same, everything changes, and grandmother Lela is slipping away from her bohemian life with the onset of Alzheimer’s. Skipping a generation, Leonor channels Lela’s rebellious spirit, while her mother Mónica rails against her unconventional upbringing and struggles with the difficult decision to sell the family home.

This is the debut feature from the young director and has already won praise and awards from various festivals in Chile and Mexico; fresh out of film school, Reyes looks to be a rising star in Chilean cinema.
