Maite Alberdi & Giedrė Žickytė, Chile/Lithuania/Denmark, 2016, 26’
Josebe (88) lives in a nursing home in Santiago, Chile. She’s obsessed with knowing where the rest of the elderly residents come from. Everyone tell her they are Chilean, not Spaniard, as she is. Josebe insists on talking about her youth in the Basque Country. After a full year there, she struggles to remember that she is living in a nursing home. Despite 70 years in Chile, she still remembers vividly her Basque homeland.
