La Hija de un ladrón (12A) (A Thief’s Daughter)
Part of: ¡Viva! Spanish & Latin American Festival Protected content
This Opening Night film sets the bar high with a powerful first feature from Catalan writer/director Belén Funes, starring Greta Fernández as a painfully lonely young woman navigating a toxic family situation, with her errant parent played by her real life father Eduard Fernández.
In a working-class Barcelona neighbourhood, 22-year-old Sara valiantly battles to bring up her infant son and look after her troubled little brother, with an extremely precarious home and job situation. Insecurity reigns for Sara, and the arrival of her deeply unreliable father Manuel only further destabilises her world. This is an emotionally engaging story that draws comparisons with the stark realism of the Dardenne brothers or Ken Loach, and lives up to all its accolades and awards.
We are pleased to welcome director Belén Funes and producer Marçal Cebrián for a Q&A following the screening.
