UK Premiere/ La Casa entre los cactus

In a remote corner of the island of Gran Canaria in the late 1970s, Emilio and Rosa have created a perfect family home for their five daughters, all named after flowers: Lis, Iris, Melisa, Lila and Dalia. But a dark secret lurks beneath the idyllic surface, one that threatens to destroy this secluded, personal paradise.

Adapted from a recent best-selling novel of the same name, Carlota González-Adrio’s feature debut makes excellent use of the bucolic scenery, with a subtle soundtrack and a talented cast (including nine-year-old identical twins). As the eerie tension mounts through the twists and turns of this psychological thriller, be carried away to another place and time where all is not what it seems.

Event/ The screening on Wed 15 Mar will be followed by a Q&A with writer-director Carlota González-Adrio.
