OVER THE RAINBOW: TODO SOBRE MI MADRE
Every year we’re delighted to participate in Pride with a week stacked full of your favorite LGBTQI+ stories. This edition sees recent arthouse hits Portrait De La Jeune Fille En Feu and Call Me By Your Name return, but also Gus van Sant’s 90’s classic My Own Private Idaho, Pedro Almodóvar’s beloved melodrama Todo Sobre Mi Madre and Dee Rees’ revelatory debut Pariah join Over The Rainbow program.
Pedro Almodóvar directed this story of a woman and her circle of friends who find themselves suffering a variety of emotional crises. Displaying Almodóvar’s trademark visual style and a unusually strong sense of character-driven drama, Todo Sobre Mi Madre/All About My Mother received a highly anticipated theatrical run in Spain before winning the Best Director award at the 1999 Cannes Film Festival; in 2000, Almodóvar would receive the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.
Please note that these screenings will feature English subtitles.
