After Lucía // Después de Lucía, a film by Michel Franco, follows a young woman silently struggling through an onslaught of bullying, humiliation, and grief. A good complement to our recent post for short film TO THIS DAY.

Synopsis can be read as follows (via Screenrush:

“DESPUÉS DE LUCÍA revolves around the story of a father and daughter trying to overcome the death of Lucia, who died in a car crash six months previously. Roberto, Lucia’s husband, decides to make a new start in Mexico and daughter Alejandra finds it hard to fit in at her new school because she is smarter and prettier than the other girls. She becomes the victim of bullying from her jealous classmates yet she refuses to talk to her father about her problems.”
