SUMMER 1993 (Verano 1993)
SPAIN 97min. 14A
Directed by Carla Simón
Starring Laia Artigas, Paula Robles, Bruna Cusí, David Verdaguer
In Spanish and Catalán with English subtitles.

Unfolding during a sun-dappled summer in the Catalonian countryside, this autobiographical debut balances delicately on the aftermath of tragedy. At the centre of every scene is 6-year-old Frida, whose mother’s death has caused her to be transplanted from a Barcelona apartment to the rural home of her young uncle and his wife. As Frida struggles to adjust, the movie evokes her emotional fragility with a series of low-key yet vivid vignettes. Filmed in the locations where the director Carla Simó lived at that age, Summer 1993 is movingly understated and beautifully acted. The cinematographer, Santiago Racaj, frequently crouches down to toddler height; through his lens, we see an entirely new family being born. – Jeannette Catsoulitis, New York Times

Please note: a postcard for the series incorrectly states the start time as 6:30PM. The correct start time is indeed 6:45PM. Membership free screening not applicable.
