What we love about this film

Tu Me Manques is an intimate, lo-fi character study that looks into the ways in which we fill the mysteries of a life half shared. The recently passed Gabriel's father Jorge and partner Sebastian use discussion and artistic expression to learn more about themselves and their loved one through a measured, unfurling script.
