Sentimental Education / La Educación Sentimental
  • Year2019
  • Duration65 min

A first-person description of the director’s transition from being a young man into (an increasingly deferred) adulthood. A traumatic time, where the innocence of early life is essentially abandoned after sentimental break-ups, job and artistic disappointments and where the weight of the nuclear family is understood as a source of both support as well as repression.
But in the meantime: love, playfulness, excuses for counting the days, and an encounter with the magic of projecting films in a cinema.
