Zita Folkets Bio is the oldest autonomous cinema in Stockholm. The cinema’s task is to show quality films for both adults and children that do not usually appear on the bigger cinemas.

About the film

What does it mean to be a mother? What makes a mother a mother? What are the main challenges mothers face in Latin America? What happens to a woman when she has no choice but is forced to carry on with an undesired pregnancy? These are some of the questions which directors Sol Berruezo, Paula Hernández and Paz Fábrega lift and cast light on in their films Mamá, mamá, mamá, Las siamesas and Aurora.

 Join the directors in a conversation about motherhood in Latin American cinema, their experience in the production and distribution of films about this issue and the potential that fiction cinema has to improve women’s lives.

Welcome the 25th of September, 16:05 at Zita Folkets Bio after the screening of Mamá, mamá, mamá.
