FILM SCREENING: YOLIK (DESPACIO)

The experiences Linda, well into old age, shares with those around her, keep her childhood memories alive: what her parents taught her and the places where she grew up. Linda shows she can age with dignity without letting go of her identity. Going slowly does not mean stopping.
