London

The Galician Film Forum starts their spring program with a double projection of the short film Matria, followed by the documentary All the Women. Both films will be projected in Galician with English subtitles.

Matria

The evening will start with the screening of the short film Matria, by Alvaro Gago. This is very special for us because the director was one of the founding members of the Galician Film Forum, and we are very proud to bring it back to London to present his new work.

Matria tells the story of Ramona, a working-class woman from Galicia and how she tries to take refuge from her daily routine in the relationship with her daughter and granddaughter.

Matria received multiple awards, including the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance Film Festival (USA), and it is one of the most awarded films in the history of Galician cinema.

At the end of the screening, we will have Alvaro Gago in flesh to talk to us about the film and his new projects.

All the Women I know

For the second part of the evening, we will screen All the Women I Know, a documentary by Xiana do Teixeiro that portraits three groups of women, in different settings, discussing their personal experiences as women and reflecting about gender roles and equality.

The nature of the conversations can be considered distressing for some viewers, as they cover issues like violence or harassment.
