Special Presentation

Director Benito Zambrano will be in attendance at the first In-Theater screening to participate in a post-screening Q&A.

This event is paired with Estrella Damm Culinary Series: LEMON & POPPYSEED CAKE Dinner at Undisclosed

In a small town located on the island of Mallorca, Anna and Marina, two sisters who were separated when they were teenagers, meet again to sell a bakery they’ve inherited from a mysterious woman they know nothing about.

The two sisters have led very different lives. Anna has barely left the island and is unhappily married to a man she no longer loves. Marina travels the world working as a doctor for an NGO. As the sisters try to uncover the secrets hidden behind their enigmatic benefactor and her property, they are forced to confront old family disputes and make up for lost time.

His previous movies Solas, La voz dormida, and Out in the Open, screened at the 2000, 2012, and 2020 Miami Festival, respectively.
