Manuela and Olmo meet again after 15 years, just as they had promised when they were teenagers and were in love. Although the film, directed by Jonás Trueba, seems to have a solely romantic plot, it is actually a film in search of time, or rather, about the consciousness of time: the ones we lost and the ones we recovered; about what we remember about ourselves and what we forget; about the words, gestures, and feelings to which we are faithful, because they define and challenge what it means to be in the present, the past and the future. The movie will feature Chinese subtitles. It is free to attend, but reservation is needed so contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
