Film Fest Gent - I'm Not From Here

Josebe (88) lives in a nursing home in Chile. She's obsessed with knowing where do the rest of the elder people she lives with, come from. Everyone tell her that they are chilean, not spaniard as she is. Josebe insists on thinking about her youth in the Basque Country. After a full year living in that house, she struggles to remember that she is living in a nursing home. After 70 years in Chile, she still remembers lively her homeland.
