poster Cría cuervos (Carlos Saura, ES 1975)
Winner of the Cannes Grand Prix in 1976, Carlos Saura is responsible for making Ana Torrent's expressive eyes become part of Spanish cinematography. Ana remembers everything that occurred after her dad's death twenty years ago. Her daughter, nine years old, believes she has the power over the life and death of those who live around her. Also, she believes she has the power to summon Ana’s mother, long since deceased. With her, she revives their tender and, on occasion, dominant relationship.


Anna Saura is the daughter of Carlos Saura, the iconic Spanish filmmaker. Eulalia Ramón is his wife. Carlos Saura passed away last February, and they both have been addressing the many tributes that different festivals and cities have dedicated to his memory. They will be at the screening and will address the Q&A after to talk about Saura's work. The Q&A will have a translator.
