Awash in images of ethereal beauty, these richly sensorial films evoke the emotions of two children coming to terms with the complexities of the adult world.

A girl awakens to troubling truths about her enigmatic father in EL SUR, Víctor Erice’s exquisite follow-up to THE SPIRIT OF THE BEEHIVE, which conveys the wonder and mystery of childhood through stunning, painterly visuals worthy of Vermeer.
