Certificate PG

A woman remembers her childhood and early teenage years – and in particular her relationship with her mysterious father – in northern Spain in the late 50s. Víctor Erice’s lyrical masterpiece conjures up the secretive atmosphere of life under Franco’s regime, and contemplates the all-pervasive influence of time, not only on our memories but on our capacity for hope and love, disappointment and despair.

Also available on BFI Player.

The screening on Wednesday 15 May 18:20 will be introduced by Maria Delgado, Royal Central School of Speech and Drama.
