Det är kvinnorna som bär upp kulturen vilket vi blir varse i denna underbara dokumentär. De köper diktsamlingar, de samlas i teaterfoajéer och de fyller cinemateken.

Vi följer sex äldre kvinnor i Argentina, Uruguay och Spanien som tillbringar det mesta av sina eftermiddagar i biografen, en central plats i deras liv. I samtalen dem emellan hör vi deras djupa kunskap om film, regissörer och om andra kulturyttringar. En del av filmen är som en eloge till filmfestivalen som fenomen och en av kvinnorna lägger ner mycket tid på att skapa det perfekta festivalschemat. María Álvarez har gjort en underbar hyllning till biografen som ett livets universitet.

Regissör: María Álvarez

María Alvarez, born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, is a writer and a director. From 2010 to 2011, she directed The Bank, an eight-chapter docu-fiction about the history of the National Bank of Argentina. In 2012, she wrote her short film, The Sea, which was selected at Mar del Plata. She has just published her play, Burn before Reading which was awarded the second prize of the Fray Luis de León award.

Since I was a film student, I’ve been seeing these ladies, sharing matinee shows with them. They were there, and still are: “the cinephiles”. We always see them. So, I decided to film them. The biggest challenge was to construct a tale with a dramatic arc, but without a voice-over or a concrete story, to take the viewer on a journey from “cinephile” to “cinephile”, intertwining their stories to build one unique character that reveals the constant dialogue between fiction and life. Each one of these women is a different aspect of the same character: my own future. Beyond the love of film, I was interested in the cinema as a place that contains solitude and the passage of time, cinema as a “date” that motivates these old women to dress up and leave their homes, to be at a certain place at a certain time. What would they do if movie theatres didn’t exist? I did not want to make a film about movies. Movies and cinema are two different things. And cinema is a (great) excuse to talk about something else.
