In June, a new free cinema screening series from the Instituto Cervantes is coming. This time, influenced by the #MeToo movement that has made an impression in society throughout the world, the central theme of the film series is 'Hispanic Female Filmmakers'.

The second film featured in our Hispanic Women Filmmakers cinema series will be 'The bride' ('La novia', 2015), by Saragossan director Paula Ortiz.

Ortiz, who whith her first film 'Chrysalis' ('De tu ventana a la mía', 2008) amazed audiences and critics, did not disappoint anyone seven years later making an adaptation of Federico García Lorca's 'Blood wedding'.

Leonardo, The Groom and The Bride have been an inseparable triangle since they were kids, but Leonardo and The Bride possess an invisible, ferocious, unbreakable thread. The years go by and she, in anguish, is getting prepared for her wedding with The Groom in the middle of the white desert where she lives with her father. The day before the ceremony, a beggar knocks on her door and offers her a present and a piece of advice: "Don't get married if you don't love him", while she gives her two crystal daggers. The Bride's body shudders. The same day of her wedding, the bride and her lover escape on horseback to live their love. Their disobedience will have devastating consequences.

15th June, 6.30 pm, Instituto Cervantes Leeds (LS2 3AR) / 2015 / 93 mins. / Spanish language with English subtitles. / Free entry, all welcome
