On Wednesday, 3 August, Summer Pioner in Sokolniki Park will host a premiere screening of “Julieta” (Spanish with Russian subtitles).

Julieta is just a bit over fifty and lives in Madrid, but is planning to leave her orderly life behind and move to Portugal. Her daughter Antia, only recently having turned eighteen, disappears with no explanation, immediately after her father and Julieta’s husband, Xoan, tragically dies. After twelve years, Julieta finds out by accident that her daughter is still living in Madrid. She moves back into an apartment in the house where she raised Antiaband begins to write her daughter letters, in which she reconstructs the history of her relationship with both her daughter and Xoan, as well as with her own parents.

Pedro Almodóvar’s twentieth film, in which he again tackles the familiar subject of a woman’s destiny and the relationship of a mother with her children. The film is based on three stories by Canadian writer and laureate of both the Nobel Prize in Literature and the Booker Prize, Alice Munro. The film was nominated for the Palme d’Or at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.
