THE SPIRIT OF THE BEEHIVE                                 CLASSICAL FILM

Saturday, March 25

6 pm

Eight-year-old Ana lives in a close-knit Castillian village with her daydreamer mother Teresa, older sister Isabel and father Fernando, who tends beehives for a living. After watching James Whale’s 1931 version of Frankenstein with Boris Karloff, little Ana becomes convinced that the monster is living in one of the nearby houses. When an escaped convict seeks refuge in one house, Ana believes she has finally met the monster of her nightmares. Widely regarded as the greatest Spanish film of the 1970s, Victor Erice’s “The Spirit of the Beehive” is a visually arresting, bewitching portrait of a child’s haunted inner life.
