De tu ventana a la mía | Paula Ortiz, 2011
Spain | 95 minutes

Director Paula Ortiz in person at both screenings!

In 1923, Violeta’s passions are aroused when a young university student spends some time in her house. In 1941, Ines hides her lover, an anti-Franco activist, knowing he could be arrested at any moment. In 1975, Luisa is so wrapped up in her petty concerns she doesn’t see the possibility of happiness right before her. First-time director Paula Ortiz here creates a chronicle of three generations of Spanish women each trying to control their own destinies against the background of a rapidly changing Spain.
