Taberna’s feature directorial début is a powerful portrait, based on the life of the first woman to hold a position of responsibility in ETA. After years at the heart of the deadly Basque separatist organisation, Yoyes decides to abandon that life. She spends years in exile in Mexico and changes her life completely. But her decision to return with her young daughter to her Basque homeland represents a threat that cannot be ignored. Based on a strong central performance from Torrent, YOYES is a ‘daring, courageous, sincere film’ (El Mundo).
