Mayxabelor the story of the repentant ETA

How to live on when the man of her life was killed by a bullet in the neck by the Basque separatist organization ETA? How to find meaning in its existence when hundreds of politicians were killed on behalf of this terrorist organization?
Mayxabel (The Repentant), directed by Iciar Bollen, tells this story, or rather, these stories. Maishabel Laza is the widow of Juan Maria Jaurega, the former civil governor of the Spanish Basque Country who was assassinated by ETA in 2000. She and her daughter Maria cannot recover from this tragedy that destroyed their lives.Blanca Portillo as Maysabel (Author’s films of Epicenter).

There is an Ibon on the other side of the bar. It was he who drove the car of the terrorists. Two universes that share everything, two worlds that hate each other.

Unusual request

Eleven years later, Maria has left home and started a family, but the pain remains the same for her as it was for her mother. It was then that Maysabel received an unusual request: one of the terrorists responsible for the death of her husband wants to meet her in prison, where he is serving his sentence, having repented of everything and breaking with the terrorist organization. Against all expectations and despite her pain, she will agree. The correspondence is tense, the terrorist wants to be freed from his inner prison. He may succeed, but he will never receive Maysabel’s forgiveness. She has a sentence that sums it all up: “I’d rather be a widow than your mother.”
Maixabel, brilliantly played by Blanca Portillo, will find some peace here. Liberation will come later. In tears of emotion.

Impressions. Monday, April 4, 14:00; Thursday, April 7, 20:30; Friday, April 8, 5:30 pm Duration: 1 hour 55 minutes.
