Tea Time

.

A celebration of the small things that help us endure. Tea Time, filmed over five years, illuminates a beautiful paradox: as familiar worlds slip away, friendships grow ever stronger and more profound. Ritual is often associated with powerful and impersonal institutions, but for five Chilean women, ritual centers on a monthly gathering that has sustained them through 60 years of personal and societal change. A charming and poignant look at how a seemingly mundane routine of tea and pastries has helped the well-heeled participants commemorate life’s joys and cope with infidelity, illness and death.
