Garter Lane Arts Centre, 16th October at 7:30pm

summer-1993_20170711112024.pngA thoughtful and moving family portrait,
When six year old Frida’s mother dies from AIDS related pneumonia, she moves from her life in Barcelona to her Uncles Catalonian farm.

This new family and her landscape are alien to Frida; she’s afraid of the chickens, she doesn’t know the difference between a lettuce and a cabbage and she has a new, adoring, annoying little sister.

While her family’s warmth and love are abundant, their attempts to protect her only increase Frida’s bewilderment and isolation.

This autobiographical first feature explores Frida’s conflicting emotions as she struggles to process her losses and adjust to her new life.  The performances of the two children are disarmingly vulnerable and natural in this gorgeous, yet unsentimental film about a child navigating grief.

Tickets price: €9
