Event Details

" equate Franco and Frankenstein as twin masters of horror is too crude. By focusing not on national conflict but on domestic distress, what one reviewer called "the war behind the window," Erice gives a much more subtle and moving take on the historical trauma suffered by Spain in the twentieth century." - Paul Julian Smith.

Join film critic Walter Chaw and filmmaker, author and actor Guillermo del Toro (dir. Pan's Labyrinth, dir. Pacific Rim, dir. The Shape of Water) to talk about this film. The Spirit of the Beehive is available on DVD to DPL cardholders through Prospector, a combined catalog from other library collections near Denver.
