|The Spirit of the Beehive|
The 2008 La Mirada Festival program is being launched with a screening The Spirit of the Beehive
- the sold out inaugral film of the 2007 Festival.
Selected by Pedro Almodovar for last year's Festival, The Spirit Of The Beehive
is considered to be the best Spanish movie of the 1970s. It is a lyrical masterpiece starring a six-year-old girl, in what is arguably one of the best child performances ever. In her small Castillian village, Ana attends a traveling movie show of Frankenstein and becomes possessed by its memory.
One of the most visually fascinating and emotionally beautiful movies ever made.
