This weekend Instituto Cervantes invites to enjoy for FREE another Spanish classic movie: EL SUR (The South). Directed by Víctor Erice in 1983, the film had an immediate international recognition that would confirm Erice’s status as an auteur.
Based on a story by Spanish writer Adelaida García Morales, El sur is set in the aftermath of the Spanish Civil War. It depicts the childhood and adolescent life of Estrella, a girl fascinated by her father, a brooding doctor haunted by a secret past.
The film will be available with English subtitles. Please note that it will be accessible from the Philippines only on July 18 & 19 (Saturday & Sunday).
