Famed Spanish actor Gustavo Salmerón (MENSAKA, ASFALTO) makes his feature directorial debut with this intimate documentary about his mother, Julita. Through a series of interviews, the film walks us through the woman’s entire life, including her past accomplishments, lost dreams and future hopes, creating a loving portrait that is both universal and deeply personal. The film has become a surprise favorite among Spanish audiences, as well as winner of Best Documentary at the 2018 Goya Awards. “A celebration of the life of an extraordinary woman with whom most viewers will probably also have fallen in love by the time the credits roll.” - Jonathan Holland, The Hollywood Reporter.
