Película: Mar adentro

This year I showed the film “Mar adentro” for the first time. I used it with my heritage Spanish speakers.  The students and I enjoyed the film, and it led to some good discussions about quality of life and how much of our identity is tied to our physical selves.  We watched it in Spanish with the Spanish subtitles because the Galician accent is hard to understand at times. For non-natives, I think the English subtitles would be required.Here are the resources I found online to use with the film.
