After spending much of the 1970s working in television, Ibáñez Serrador returned to the cinema with ¿Quién puede matar a un niño? In this incredibly atmospheric horror film, an English couple on holiday in Spain find more than they bargained for when they visit what seems a perfect island continuously bathed in sunlight. With no adults to be seen, the horror of their situation slowly emerges as they find that the island’s children are seemingly ready to take their revenge.
¿Quién puede matar a un niño? is one of the major achievements of European horror cinema in the 1970s and has been influential on many filmmakers since.
Presented in partnership with the Instituto Cervantes.
