With live performance by Carmen Moore

Itandehui Jansen | 89 mins | Mexico | Scottish Premiere

The feature debut of Scottish-based director Itandehui Jansen, In Times of Rain (Tiempo De Lluvia) weaves together the story of different generations of women from Mexico’s indigenous Mixtec community.

Traditional healer Soledad is bringing up her grandson Jose in a small, rural village whilst her daughter tries to find work in Mexico City. When her daughter makes plans to marry, Soledad is faced with a difficult choice: should Jose stay with her, within a community and landscape he is growing to love, or should he join his mother in the city? Tiempo De Lluvia is a powerful story about women finding themselves caught between different experiences of life, on the sharp end of economic migration.

The screening will be introduced with traditional Mexican songs from Carmen Moore and followed by a Q+A session with the director, Itandehui Jansen.
