SUMMER 1993

  • On Tuesday, December 4 at 6:45 pm. Free, RSVP required.
  • At the Former Residence of the Ambassadors of Spain, 2801 16th Street NW, Washington, D.C.
  • Directed by Carla Simón, Spain, 2017, 96 minutes.
  • In Catalan and Spanish with English subtitles. Watch trailer.

Six-year-old Frida looks on in silence as the last objects from her recently deceased mother’s apartment are placed in boxes. Although her aunt, uncle, and younger cousin Anna welcome her with open arms, it’s only very slowly that Frida begins to get used to her new home in the countryside. Striking a careful balance between narrative and atmosphere, writer-director Carla Simon paints a vivid portrait of a light-filled summer when a little girl has to face the loss of her mother and integration into a new nuclear family.
