Rolling Family (Familia Rodante)

Life is an adventure, roll with it


Synopsis

Festival favourite from Pablo Trapero, the semi-autobiographical Rolling Family stars Trapero’s own grandmother, who won awards for her performance as the family matriarch.
Octogenarian grandmother Emilia (Graciana Chironi) squeezes her extended family into a dilapidated motor home for a cross-country road trip teeming with domestic discord in this Argentinean comedy. As they travel toward the Brazilian border to attend a family wedding, relationships blossom and fall apart, old feuds reignite, and other thorny issues crop up in the camper’s stifling close quarters.
