Screening: The Travel Agent (2015) (Pequeñas mentiras piadosas)
From her tiny office overlooking the U.S interests section, Lourdes counsels thousands of Cubans seeking a U.S. travel visa. She coaches them on answering tricky questions and fine-tuning their stories so they have a better chance of succeeding. Despite helping others to travel, she has never been able to visit her own mother, son, brothers, grandsons and newphews in Florida. After a long wait, Lourdes' time has finally come: her interview is set. Her dream to visit her dying mother, who emigrated during the sixties, has never been so close. Will she be able to travel and finally overturn her destiny of forced separation?
