In conjunction with his exhibition, Noah Doely: By the Light, Doely will discuss the construction of his works and his larger photographic practice. The artist will also introduce the evening's film by describing its influence on his own art.
About the film: "The Spirit of the Beehive" was director Victor Erice's debut in 1973, and the highly symbolic work continues to be regarded not only as one of his best films, but as a masterpiece of Spanish cinema.
Erice's story follows six-year-old Ana, and her fascination with an old Frankestein film, while living with her aloof and detached family in a remote Castilian village, not long after the victory of Franco's forces. Erice's carefully considered scenes combine striking visuals and subtle symbolism to offer a veiled critique of Spanish society that cleared Franco's censhorship office.
Approximate running time is 95 minutes, the film is NR, 1973.
