Gutsy cinema that breaks new ground
| 97 minutes | 2017
A six-year-old orphan goes to live with her uncle’s family in the Catalan director’s autobiographical tale. Carla Simón explores her young heroine’s grief and discovery of a new environment in a first feature inspired by her own childhood. Filmed with restraint and compassion, the film brings out the young girl’s pain through camera work shot exclusively from her perspective. Minimalist yet deeply moving, Summer 1993 captures the very essence of childhood with subtlety and sensitivity.IN COMPETITION
