ANDRÓMEDAS

by Clara Sanz

synopsis

María emigrated from Ecuador and for the last ten years has lived in a town in La Mancha, keeping house and caring for Rosita, the filmmaker’s grandmother. Andrómedas observes them as they go about life, focusing on their everyday interactions, while other women pop in with the latest gossip to share around the kitchen table strewn with saffron flowers. The flavours rising from the pots on the stove waft outside to the cats in the courtyard as the sounds of the outside world drift in and the trees look on. However, this delicately balanced world is about to be upset when María asks for a fortnight off.
