Our first foray is to Spain with Pedro Almodóvar’s, masterpiece All About My Mother.
This is the tale of a mother who suffers an untimely tragedy, and so begins a journey of hopeful closure - that ultimately becomes one of illuminating discovery. Manuela, surrounds herself with an unlikely array of women who support and dramatically affect each other’s lives. It is in essence a celebration of motherhood.
“To all actresses who have played actresses. To all women who act. To men who act and become women. To all people who want to be Mothers. To my Mother.” Pedro Almodovar
