Tea Time - Trailer - POV 2015 | PBS


Five Chilean women have met for tea every month for 60 years, a ritual that has sustained them through six decades of personal and societal change. The film is a charming and poignant look at how a seemingly mundane routine of tea and pastries has helped the women commemorate life's joys and cope with infidelity, illness, and death. 70 minutes. Spanish with English subtitles.

“A bite-size confection whose surface sweetness hides hints of more complex flavors…”— Neil Young, The Hollywood Reporter
