Film: Nuevas Cinefilias, Estaciones singulares: This Film Is About Me

November 19

12 pm (available for 48 hours)

Alexis Delgado’s This Film Is About Me is a singular portrait of Renata Felicitas Soskey, serving time in a Galician prison for the brutal murder of her neighbor. Renata sees it clearly: this film is about her—about her personality, her charisma, her poetry, and her unpredictability, and not about her crime or her punishment. The director also becomes a player as the film unfolds, caught up in his fascination with his subject.

2019; Spanish and German with English subtitles; 61 minutes; not recommended for children under 12.
