Featured Film – Summer 1993 (2018)
With a storyline based on the real experiences of Writer/Director Carla Simon, SUMMER 1993 follows 6-year-old Frida, as she moves from Barcelona to the Catalan province to live with her aunt and uncle, who are now her new legal guardians, after the death of her mother. It’s only very slowly that Frida begins to get used to her new home in the beautiful Catalan countryside. Punctuated by moments of youthful exuberance and mature ruminations, this coming of age drama is an extraordinarily moving snapshot of being a child in an adult world, anchored by flawless performances by its two young actors. “Ultimately, this is a memorable look at our desire to love and feel safe, to connect and belong – and the unexpected ways in which families can reshape and grow.” – LA Times
