¡Que Linda Es Mi Vida!

Pop-Pop has long been the heartbeat of the filmmaker’s family. After escaping Colombia during a violent Civil War, he had no choice but to chase an American dream. Pop-Pop learned English, joined the Army, started a business — and buried the past. He lost his family name but held onto his smile as he built a new identity. ¡Que Linda Es Mi Vida! explores the joyful, imaginative and poignant presence of Jairo “Pop-Pop” Palma through endearing vignettes and his grandson’s reflections.
