Starring Naíma Sentíes, Montserrat Marañon, Marisol Gasé

Sol, a seven-year-old girl, goes to her grandfather’s home, where her aunts Nuri and Alejandra are throwing a surprise birthday party for her father. It is probably his last, so in a sense it is also a farewell ceremony. With the onset of dusk, an unfamiliar and unrestrained atmosphere takes over, breaking the family bonds. For Sol, the world is about to change as she learns the essence of letting go and feels the breath of life.

Introduced by Dr Anna Clayfield from the Department of Languages and Cultures at Chester University.

Dr Clayfield is a Senior Lecturer in Spanish and Latin American Studies in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Chester. Her teaching and research expertise lie in contemporary Latin American history and cultural studies.
