Alba. 2016. Ecuador/Mexico/Greece. Written and directed by Ana Cristina Barragán. In Spanish; English subtitles. 98 min.

With Macarena Arias, Pablo Aguirre Andrade, Amaia Merino. When her bedridden single mother is hospitalized, Alba, a shy, lonely 11 year old, is sent to live with Igor, the father she hardly knows. An eccentric, solitary figure, Igor lives in complete isolation in a run-down apartment, though an old photo Alba comes across reveals that he was once a radiant, happy young man. Few words are exchanged between father and daughter, yet the two slowly get to know one another. Ana Cristina Barragán's sensitive, award-winning feature debut has brought much excitement to Ecuadorian cinema.
