ESP | 2020 | dir. Juan Cavestany, with Carmen Machi, Pepón Nieto, Luis Bermejo | Spain | 2020 | UK premiere

Alfredo and Teresa, a married couple from Burgos, finally decide to set off on their dream trip to New York. Shortly after their arrival, however, Teresa struggles to shake the feeling that something is off, while Alfredo picks up on inconsistencies between how he imagined these famous monuments and the reality before him… Cavestany’s comedy is a fresh take on tourism, globalised provincialism, the banality of a long-married couple’s daily life, and much more.
