Screens before: Partes de una familia. Short, nuanced drama in which Rebecca discovers that there is a reason for granny’s sharp tongue and the harsh upbringing she provides.

This brief drama written, directed and played by young people from Guyana proves to be a prescient, nuanced look at a complex theme.
