LIM.FILMANTHROPY Film Series Kicks off with 'Blancanieves' on Sept. 24

9/24/2013

A bullfighting twist on Snow White set in 1920s Spain

The Fall 2013 season of the LIM.FILMANTHROPY film series will kick off on September 24 with a showing of Blancanieves. (1 hr 44 min - PG-13 some violent content and sexuality)

Blancanieves, a re-working of the Brothers Grimm classic fairy tale "Snow White," is a breathtakingly beautiful film and a uniquely spirited homage to the black-and-white Golden Age of Europe's silent cinema. Set in a romanticized 1920s Seville, Berger's Snow White is Carmen (Macarena García), the daughter of a famous bull fighter, who lives under the tyrannical rule of her monstrous, evil stepmother, Encarna (Maribel Verdú). She escapes and joins a troupe of bullfighting dwarves, where her beauty and natural talent in the ring attract notices from the press. But soon the news reaches Encarna, who at last she knows where to find Carmen, and she prepares for the final showdown. Spanish with English subtitles

Films in the LIM.FILMANTHROPY series are selected by a panel of students and faculty. Admission is free, but donations to a non-profit organization, which will be selected by students at the end of the semester, will be accepted.
