Jueves de Cine - Fall 2018
Dir. by Natalia Almada. Mexico, USA 2016
Doña Flor is a bureaucrat. It is in everything that comprises her, her non-descript beige blouse, practical heels and knee-length skirts. For over three decades she has attended frustrated and indignant citizens to whom she is nothing but an invisible, lifeless bureaucrat, and has returned each evening to her cat and solitary apartment where she makes obsessive lists of the people she attended to during the day. The film has won numerous award at International film festivals including Best Actress and Special Mention from the Jury at the 14th Morelia Film Festival, Mexico and the Special Jury Award at the 18th Mumbai Film Festival in India.
