Still from the film "Little Red Riding Hood". Landscape. Blue-gray color scheme. Dusk. Puffy clouds, in the center of the image a shiny road cuts its way into a mountain range. The lights of small villages are visible.

When my grandmother was eight years old, she crossed a mountainous forest, at a time when the Spanish sky buzzed with military planes. That day she escaped from the servitude to which her own godfather exposed her, towards her hometown. At some point, she decided to study sewing. And some time later, she crossed the sea alone, towards Buenos Aires. One afternoon, I asked her to teach me how to sew. As we make a red hooded coat, we, two women separated by more than sixty years, discuss the stories and contradictions of our gender and class within four walls. Outside, a new feminist generation takes to the streets.
