Film: The Spirit of the Beehive
Made in 1973, this film is set in the Castillian countryside of Spain in 1939, at the end of the Spanish Civil War and the onset of Franco's long fascist rule. "The Spirit of the Beehive" is often cited as a masterpiece in film history. Enigmatic and beautiful, it is a bewitching portrayal of a child's inner life at the locus of innocence and evil.
