The Long Holidays of 1936

To coincide with ¡Viva! Spanish and Latin American Film Festival, we’re pleased to present this classic from late Franco era Spain. Set in a middle-class holiday resort near Barcelona at the time of the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War, the film tells the story of a bourgeois family caught up in the drama of the conflict. The experiences of the holidaymakers form an engrossing microcosm of the developing political situation.
