MARIA (AND EVERYBODY ELSE)

Q&A with filmmaker Nely Reguera on June 2

[MARÍA (Y LOS DEMÁS)]
A struggling writer afraid to let anyone read her first novel, María is at a crossroads. Her father, with whom she still lives, is engaged to his nurse after a recent stint in the hospital. Her brothers have successful careers and are in long-term relationships. After 20 years of caring for her father and siblings following the death of her mother when she was 15, María must look inward and re-evaluate her own life. In her debut feature, director/writer Nely Reguera captures the experience of letting go with a stunning performance by Bárbara Lennie (MAGICAL GIRL, THE SKIN I LIVE IN) while exploring the nuances of complicated relationships with dark humor and emotional depth. Winner, Best Film (Ibero-American Feature Film Competition), 2017 Miami Film Festival; Official Selection, 2016 San Sebastián Film Festival. DIR/SCR Nely Reguera; PROD Luisa Romeo. Spain, 2016, color, 90 min. In Spanish with English subtitles. NOT RATED
