Screening as part of the Mediterranean Summer Special season.

A gorgeously-shot manipulated ‘documentary’ and winner of three Gaudi Awards, My Mexican Bretzel is a mesmerising journey filled with images of painstaking beauty that are a balm to the eyes and the soul. The discovery of Nuria Gimenez Lorang as a witty, bright writer and the staggering beauty of the film images result in one of the most imaginative films seen in 2020.

My Mexican Bretzel becomes the filmed diary of a Swiss woman whose lifestyle will make you dream. Vivian Barrett experienced the world of the 1950 and 1960s like something from a novel: skiing in the Alps during winter, flying over the Rocky Mountains and sailing the Mediterranean in summer.

Lies are just another way of telling the truth. What is cinema after all, but a big illusion?
