See You Tomorrow, God Willing!

Directed by Ainara Vera

Seventeen Franciscan nuns, all deep into their eighties, collectively run a convent somewhere in Spain. They begin at dawn with their religious duties and more worldly tasks such as mopping and sewing. While the passing conversations do cover biblical questions, they also touch on life’s more banal subjects. In between, the nuns prepare for a birthday.  With their ends in sight, they’re continually surprised by the changing outside world. Will their charitable and contemplative lifestyle continue to exist after they’re gone? Besides playing host to serious questions around life, the convent’s halls has still space for cheerful jokes, gossip, and slapstick.
