THE ETERNAL FEMININE (Los adioses)

North American Premiere

DIRECTED BY Natalia Beristain

Original Title: Los adioses

Running Time: 85min

Some four decades after her untimely demise, Rosario Castellanos remains one of Mexico’s most important literary figures. The author of numerous volumes of poetry and essays and a trio of beloved semi-autobiographical novels, Castellanos, a member of the legendary Generation of 1950, was not only a prolific author but also a pioneer: in a stringently male-dominated literary scene, she provided an insistent female voice.

This evocative bio-pic from director Natalia Beristáin (She Doesn’t Want to Sleep Alone) focuses on a pair of pivotal moments in Castellanos’ life: her time as an introverted university student looking for route to belonging and her tempestuous relationship with philosopher Ricardo Guerra.

Featuring engrossing performances from veteran actors Karina Gidi, Daniel Giménez Cacho and After Lucia’s Tessa Ia, The Eternal Feminine apprehends the essence of a woman whose life and work continue to fascinate and inspire.


THE ETERNAL FEMININE screens with THE CANNONBALL WOMAN.
