Summer 1993 (Verano 1993)

At the centre of every scene is 6-year-old Frida, whose mother’s death has caused her to be transplanted from a Barcelona apartment to the rural home of her young uncle and his wife.

Filmed in the locations where the director Carla Simó lived at that age, Summer 1993 is movingly understated and beautifully acted. The cinematographer, Santiago Racaj, frequently crouches down to toddler height; through his lens, we see an entirely new family being born. – Jeannette Catsoulitis, New York Times
