"Imitación a la vida" "(Imitation of life) es la obra maestra de Douglas Sirk, un clásico del año 1959 que cuenta con las interpretaciones de Lana Turner, Juanita Moore, John Gavin y Robert Alda.
Para Sirk, que ya había dirigido obras como "Written in the Wind", este remake de un original de 1934 supone la oportunidad de abordar en los albores de los 60 el tema de las relaciones interraciales en Estados Unidos, a través de la historia de cuatro mujeres.
Lora Meredith (Lana Turner) es una mujer blanca, viuda y con una hija, que llega a Nueva York para reanudar su carrera de actriz. Su hija Susie (Sandra Dee) tiene por nani a Annie (Juanita Moore), quien a su vez tiene una hija, Sara Jane. Las cuatro intentan entenderse en medio de distintas situaciones personales marcadas por el racismo y la opresión patriarcal.
Es este tratamiento en los conflictos femeninos lo que hace el filme aún actual: por encima de las circunstancias, del enfoque limitado y del pesimismo general de la película, se trata de la siempre válida historia de mujeres que luchan por lo que quieren.

An event declared a Festival of Galician Tourist Interest that receives an important number of visitors from all over Galicia every year. This festival was one of the first “filloa” (crepe) festivals held in Galicia, being centred on an exclusively Galician product, just like other traditional products accompanying it (honey, chorizo…), although there are similar desserts in other regions and countries. In view of its age, we can determine that it originated as a genuine promotion of this characteristic Entroido (Galician Carnival) product.
