“You have to forget the fact that it’s your story.” One of the countless children left behind by Spain’s lost generation of AIDS victims, Carla Simón dedicates her 2017 movie Estiu 1993 [Summer 1993] to her biological mother. Received many awards from international festivals, the film tells a sincere story of a six-year-old orphaned girl, trying to find her place in a new life while suffering from a silent grief.
