January's theme: the Spanish civil war

-Wednesday Jan. 12th: Libertarias
- Libertarias is a Spanish historical
drama made in 1996. It was written and directed by Vicente Aranda. In
1936, Maria, a young nun is recruited by Pilar, a militant feminist, into
an anarchist militia following the onset of the Spanish Civil War. Guided
by the older woman, Maria is exposed to the realities of war & revolution,
and comes to question her former, sheltered life.

-Wednesday Jan. 19th: Pan's Labyrinth- 2006 Mexican Spanish-language
fantasy film, written and directed by Mexican film-maker Guillermo del
Toro. Pan's Labyrinth takes place in Spain in May–June 1944, five years
after the Spanish Civil War, during the early Franquist period. The
narrative of the film interweaves this real world with a fantasy world
centered around an overgrown abandoned labyrinth and a mysterious faun
creature, with which the main character Ofelia interacts. Ofelia's
stepfather, the Falangist Captain Vidal, hunts the Spanish Maquis,
anarchists who fight against the Fascist reign in the region, while
Ofelia's pregnant mother grows increasingly ill. Ofelia meets several
strange and magical creatures who become central to her story, leading her
through the trials of the old labyrinth garden.

-Wednesday Jan. 26th: Land and Freedom- A reflective look at an
idealistic young man's involvement in the Spanish Civil War, Land and
Freedom combines wartime drama with impassioned political debate. A
dedicated young communist, Carr joins an international group of freedom
fighters in order to wage the good war against fascism. The experience
proves far less heroic than expected, however, as the fighters struggle
with poor supplies, a lack of training, & internal discord. The
traditional battles and romances of war drama follow, as Carr becomes
involved in a tumultuous affair with a fellow fighter, but director Loach
and screenwriter Jim Allen give equal weight to more philosophical
discussions about the nature and fate of socialism.

Special thanks to Santa Cruz Guerilla Drive-In for equipment support for
this series.
