Double Bill/ El asfalto and La residencia

Directed by Narciso Ibáñez Serrador

A young woman is sent to a gothic boarding school, where she finds a headmistress, memorably played by Lili Palmer, intent on keeping everyone in line with firm, physical discipline. When some of the school’s girls begin to disappear, it seems there is more at hand than simply the headmistress’s whip.

With La residencia, one of the most atmospheric European horror films of the late 1960s, Ibáñez Serrador scored a major hit at the Spanish box-office, significantly contributing to the cycle of horror film production in Spain in the 1970s.

Accompanied by El asfalto, one of the best-remembered episodes of Ibáñez Serrador’s legendary TV series, Historias para no dormir.

Presented in partnership with the Instituto Cervantes.
