Good documentary

One thing you should learn in a film school is that if you want to find a good story to tell, you should just look around you. Yulene Ozazola understands this well, and she turns the camera on her grandmother, who is an amazing character. But it's not her own story which the director is interested about, but the story of an enigmatic young men called Jorge Riosse, painter, singer and schizophrenic who lived for eight years in her grandma's boarding house and became a very close acquaintance to her. Yulene keeps us interested in knowing more about the complex and contradictory sides of this mysterious character. She includes the defunct's recording, paintings and writings and interviews several people but focusing mainly in the testimony of her grandmother. Near the end, she surprises us with an amazing twist which she cleverly chose not to give away beforehand, although at this point we understand that this is what all the story was about. Yulene has a talent for choosing the right images and pulling them together, and this is what cinema is about, isn't it?
