BUBOTA is the director looking back at her own history, at her roots and belonging, formed based on family images she had never seen. A personal journey starting out one day on a train as eight years old, when her mother revealed her biological father is not who she had always thought it was. A face-to-face encounter with both fathers, transformed into ghosts and whom, with this film, she decides to ask to stop haunting her. Piecing together family archives with considerable skill, Bujosa Cortés creates a work of extraordinary maturity, with which she confronts the memory of the fathers she would have wished to have.

CARLOTA BUJOSA CORTÉS (Mallorca, 1989). Lived for years in Berlin, where she studied Law. Settled in Madrid since 2019, where she studied Film Editing at the Film Institute and was awarded a grant to take Documentary Film studies there.
