LA ERECCIÓN DE TORIBIO BARDELLI
Over the course of two nights, a widower confronted with his own looming mortality faces his estranged children, who are in search of their own identities after the loss of their mother. As father and children come to terms with their own existence, “The Erection of Toribio Bardelli” turns into a tender and subtle meditation on grief.
