Estiu 1993 (Summer 1993) .In Carla Simon’s 2017 touching autobiographical film, six-year-old Frida looks on in silence as the last objects from her recently deceased mother’s apartment in Barcelona are placed in boxes. Although her aunt, uncle, and younger cousin Anna
welcome her with open arms, it’s only very slowly that Frida begins to get used to her new home in the countryside. Punctuated by moments of youthful exuberance and mature ruminations, this coming of age drama, set amongst summery hues, is an extraordinarily moving snapshot of being a child in an adult world, anchored by flawless performances by its two young stars..

As part of the celebrations honoring the Hispanic Heritage Month, this semester the Department of Modern Languages at the University of Mississippi is presenting the fourth Hispanic Heritage Series Films with the screening of five contemporary Spanish and Latin-American films.

This unique opportunity is made possible with the support of Pragda, the Spanish Film Club.com, SPAIN Arts & Culture, and the Secretary of State for the Culture of Spain. Our local major sponsors are: The Department of Modern Languages, The Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College, The Center for Inclusion and Cross-Cultural Engagement, and Alpha Lambda Delta. Numerous departments on campus are also supporters of this initiative.
