Simón’s evocative autobiographical film won the Best First Feature prize at the Berlin Film Festival and is this year’s Spanish Oscar submission. Following the death of her parents, six-year-old Frida is forced from bustling Barcelona to the Catalan provinces to live with her aunt and uncle. Country life is a challenge: aside from the emotional upheaval, the nature that surrounds her is mysterious, if not dangerous. She also has a new little sister she must take care of, and must deal with feelings such as jealousy. But it is the circumstances of her parents’ passing that casts a shadow over how she is treated by the local community. In Catalan with English subtitles.
