Janis and Ana meet in a hospital before giving birth. Both are single and became pregnant by accident. Janis, middle-aged, doesn’t regret it. Adolescent Ana is scared. A close link between the two blossoms, which develops into a complex relationship that will change their lives in a decisive way.
Join Dr. Terri Carney as we examine the work of Spain's prolific filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar. We will view as many as twelve of his twenty-two films at Kan-Kan Cinema.
Almodovar's films are works of art: they burst with color and stun with their precise compositions. His plotlines are labyrinths replete with coincidences and hilarious secondary characters. We will explore many of the cinematic techniques and themes that have come to define his style, which include miscommunications, liminal spaces, mise en scene, marginal characters, urban/rural divide, metafiction, nationalisms, gender, and sexual liberation.
