Storyline

To be or not to be a mother, that is the question. Milagros (37) stretches out a carefree youth in her last fertile years while Jonathan (24) seeks solace in his abandonment through his addiction to Grindr. Milagros flees from her single-parent insemination appointment. Jonathan engineers a meeting with a childhood love. The road and friendship alleviate the disorientation caused by the deceptive freedom of the early 21st century. A delirious road movie filled with music, where a mysterious mermaid with a magical crown will guide the journey.

Taking inspiration from the guerilla spirit of Spain’s ‘La Movida’ movement (an influence on the early films of Pedro Almodóvar), writer/director duo Maria Gisèle Royo and Julia de Castro deliver a queer Spanish road movie with a difference, filled with Magic Realist touches.

Introducing our guests

Actor Omar Ayuso and director Julia de Castro will join the audience for a Q&A. Omar Ayuso, a well-known actor for his performance in Netflix’s show Elite, as well as Prime Video’s show Los Farad, made his debut as director and screenwriter of the short film ‘Matar a la madre.’ Julia de Castro, a multidisciplinary artist, makes her debut as a co-director with this film. She is an actor, composer, musician, screenwriter, and researcher. With her project, De la Purissima (2009-2019), she travelled around the world spreading the Cuplé genre as an essential performative legacy in the history of female sexuality.
