The Spirit of the Beehive (Strathclyde Screenings)

FREE EVENT BUT REGISTRATION IS NECESSARY

When & Where: Tuesday 7th May | 6pm | University of Strathclyde, McCance Building , Room LH228

Title: The Spirit of the Beehive (El espíritu de la colmena)

Directed by Víctor Erice

Spain, 1973 – 99 min.

In an allegory of life after Gen. Franco’s victory in the Spanish Civil War, life in a remote village in the 1940s is calm and uneventful. Two little girls see a “Frankenstein” movie, and one of them starts wandering the countryside in search of this kind creature. A bewitching portrait of a child’s haunted inner life.

The Guardian named The Spirit of The Beehive one of the greatest arthouse films of all time

“The Spirit of the Beehive” is one of only three features and a short subject directed by Erice (…) it is a masterpiece that can only cause us to wonder what we lost because he didn’t work more. It is simple, solemn, and in the casting of young Ana Torrent, takes advantage of her open, innocent features.” (Roger Ebert)

EXTRA!: Free Screening. Part of Basque Double Bill at University of Strathclyde
