The 7th edition of the Catalan Film Festival features a selection of films directed by women and ranging from the mainstream such as Isabel Coixet to independent cinema like Neus Ballús.
Two highlights from the series:
March 10: Another Me, by Isabel Coixet
A Welsh high school student encounters a doppelganger in this thriller.
March 31: La Plaga, by Neus Ballús.
Raül, a farmer that tries to grow organic food, hires Iurie to help him in the fields. Iure is a Moldavian wrestling fighter, but in order to earn a living he has to work in whatever it comes. Slowly, their personal histories intertwine with those of three solitary women: Maria, an elder that has to leave the country house where she has always lived to join a retirement home; Rose, a nurse from Philippines who just arrived into the country; and Maribel, a prostitute that has less and less clients.
Boston: March 3 - April 21. Full details here.
