Maruja

By Berta García-Llacht, Spain 20´, 2022

“The sense of humor made into a performance by an octogenarian in Cornellà”

Maruja lives with her husband in San Ildefonso, a working class neighborhood in Cornellá. She is 80 years old, feels lonely at home and often goes out into the street in search of fresh air to make her smile, always with her shopping cart.
