Carla Simón 2022 24m

Available worldwide


Carla is pregnant and naked, imitating the poses her mother made when she was pregnant herself with Carla. Dappled sunlight falls through windows. We see Super-8 bursts of mothers and fathers, grandmothers and grandparents, smiling, stitching, reciting poetry. Then, a young girl travels from the 1960s, to the 1980s, to today, crossing thresholds of womanhood and history, until she meets with Carla by the azure blue Catalonian sea, and Carla’s newly born son, Manel.
