April's Daughter

Mexico 2017 | 103 minutes | Spanish | Hebrew subtitles

Valeria, 17, gets pregnant by her adult boyfriend. She chooses not to tell her mother, April, who’s far from the summer house where Valeria lives with her sister, Clara. But when Clara tells their mother, April arrives, eager to support Valeria. Only after the baby is born, do we understand why Valeria was so keen on keeping April as far away as possible. In this brilliant film, his fourth to participate in Cannes (following Daniel & Ana, After Lucia and Chronic), Michel Franco casts Emma Suárez (Julietta), remains loyal to his minimalistic approach, and reinforces his status as an intriguing voice in Arthouse cinema today. Winner of the Jury Prize in the Un Certain Regard section at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival.
