summer_1993_trailer_internacional

Six-year-old Frida has just lost her mother, and is picked up at their Barcelona apartment by her uncle and aunt. A new life awaits her in the countryside. While trying to cope with her confused emotions, she sometimes has defiant episodes with both her new parents and her 4-year-old cousin Anna. Although her new family is both loving and inclusive, Frida struggles to find her place in it.

SUMMER 1993 is a partly autobiographic film from feature debutant Carla Simón. The story is told from Frida’s perspective. The adults are often out of focus, or out of frame – underlining Frida’s feeling of loneliness. Little by little though, her disorientation gives way to wider camera frames and more people are allowed into the picture. The film is atmospheric and intimate, heart-breaking at times, but never sentimental.
