Summer 1993 (CTC)

Summer 1993 movie poster

A heartwarming, honest story of a six-year-old’s resilience.

One of 2018’s most awarded and acclaimed films, Carla Simón’s autobiographical debut is an evocative and profoundly affecting depiction of childhood and family lost and found, marking 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 is forced from bustling Barcelona to the Catalan provinces to live with her aunt and uncle, her new legal guardians. 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, 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.
