Event Details

In Carla Simón’s autobiographical film, six-year-old Frida looks on as the last objects from her recently deceased mother’s apartment in Barcelona are placed in boxes. In the summer of 1993, six year old Frida moves from Barcelona to the Catalan countryside to live with her aunt and uncle, now her new legal guardians.

Country life is a challenge for Frida – time passes differently, and the nature that surrounds her is mysterious. She now has a new little sister whom she has to take care of, and has to deal with new feelings, such as jealousy. Often, Frida is naively convinced that running away would be the best solution to her problems. Yet, the family does what it can to achieve a fragile new balance and bring normality to their life. Occasional family outings to a local fiesta or a swimming pool, cooking or listening to jazz in the garden bring them moments of happiness. Slowly, Frida realizes that she is there to stay and has to adapt to the new environment. Before the summer is over, she has to cope with her emotions and her new parents have to learn to love her as their own daughter.
