the spirit of the beehive

14 – 18 April, 2024

Víctor Erice’s long-awaited return to cinemas with Close Your Eyes also gives us the perfect opportunity to revisit his beloved 1973 masterpiece The Spirit of the Beehive.

Erice’s remarkable first feature concerns a family living in a remote Castilian village shortly after the end of the Civil War, and centres on eight-year-old Ana, confused about the relationship of life and death after a screening of Frankenstein. A piercingly perceptive portrait of lonely lives haunted by grief, the film boasts images of both wondrously direct simplicity and enormous eloquence.
