SUMMER 1993

This movie is from our archive and is not currently screening.

The breakout critical discovery of the 2017 Berlin Film Festival, where it was named Best First Feature, Carla Simón’s autobiographical jewel Summer 1993 is one of the most evocative and affecting depictions of childhood seen in years, and marks the arrival of a major new voice in world cinema.

In the summer of 1993, following the death of her parents, six-year old Frida (Laia Artigas) 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. The couple’s own daughter Anna (Paula Robles), even younger than Frida, welcomes her new sister with open arms and without a flicker of jealousy, but Frida has a hard time coping with her emotions. Even as the new family begins to find a fragile balance, the source of her parents’ passing casts a shadow over how Frida is treated by the local community… Indeed, her life will never be the same.
