ESP | 2017 | dir. Gustavo Salmerón, with Julieta Salmerón, Gustavo Salmerón | doc

Having lots of kids, a monkey and a castle are the three childhood dreams came true of the charismatic Julieta Salmerón. Stepping behind the camera and editing 400 hours of footage filmed over the years, Spanish actor Gustavo Salmerón captures the eccentricities of his lovable septuagenarian mother and draws a portrait of Spain in the wake of the 2008 economic crisis. Salmerón’s documentary debut has won him the Best Documentary Award at the Goyas in 2017.
