OJOS NEGROS

Director: Ivet Castelo, Marta Lallana

Info: – 2018 – 65 min. – Spanish with English subtitles

Event details:

“The theme of childhood in rural Spain has given the country some of its finest movies, including Victor Erice’s The Spirit of the Beehive (1973) and more recently Carla Simon’s 2017 critically garlanded pic Summer 1993. Marta Lallana and Ivet Castelo’s coming-of-ager debut delivers, during its short length, some really magical moments.” (Hollywood Reporter)Synopsis:

Paula is a fourteen-year-old girl who has difficulty relating to her friends and family. When summer comes, she travels alone to Ojos Negros, the village where her mother grew up and where her family still lives. The distant character of her aunt and the illness of her grandmother create a suffocating climate in the house. It is then that she meets Alicia, who is outgoing and spontaneous. The end of this first friendship and the witnessing of her grandmother’s death will make her see what growing up really means.

“This film has merits and virtues enough to compete with the very best of new Spanish cinema. Spanish cinema can rejoice in the discovery of two young female directors worth keeping a very close eye on.” (Cineuropa)
