25th anniversary revisiting of this queer international cinema landmark

No stranger to the dramedy, Pedro Almodóvar’s works possess a sheen of disarming, soapy lightness, before abruptly plunging the viewer into the deepest, soul-searching depths of humanity. All About My Mother is true to form, broaching complex themes of addiction, faith, gender identity, bereavement, and the AIDS pandemic. Yet per its title dedication, a consistent, heartfelt ode for womankind and motherhood in all its forms – with stirring, career-defining performances from both Penelope Cruz and Cecilia Roth.

Winner of the BAFTA for Best Film Not in the English Language, Academy Award for Best International Feature in 1999, and six Goya awards: All About My Mother is – in many ways – the quintessential Almodóvar film and an indisputable landmark of queer cinema.

Queer Vision are delighted to be screening All About My Mother for its 25th anniversary this year, bringing with it a rare opportunity for audiences to revisit or discover this seminal film from the Spanish auteur on the big screen.
