After the death of her mother, six-year old Frida (Artigas) is uprooted from Barcelona to live with her mother’s brother and his family in rural Catalonia. Frida is akin to some of the great child protagonists of Spanish cinema, like those in Carlos Saura’s Cría Cuervos and Victor Erice’s The Spirit of the Beehive, and Simón sensitively tracks her emotional journey as she works through her grief and adapts to new surroundings. This outstanding debut premiered at BFI London Film Festival last year to captivated audiences and it reaped several Goya Awards.
