UCL - Institute of the Americas is pleased to host a screening of this Mexican film, part of the London Latin American Film Festival 2012. Inspired by the debate about a new class of “Granny Slaves” the film examines the plight of a woman who, instead of enjoying a restful old age, is pushed into taking more and more responsibility for the upbringing of her grandchild.

The London Latin American Film Festival has been a labour of love, over the past 21 years, for Festival Director Eva Tarr-Kirkhope. Her Cuban roots and love of Latin Culture are intrinsic to LLAFF: without her passion, dedication and vision many films and filmmakers would not have gained the recognition they enjoy today.
