Set in southern Spain in 1920s, BLANCANIEVES is a re-imaging of the classic tale of Snow White and tribute to silent films. Once upon a time there was a little girl who had never known her mother. She learned the art of her father, a famous bullfighter, but was hated by her evil stepmother. One day she ran away with a troupe of dwarves, and became a legend. Winner of 10 Goya Awards, including Best Original Screenplay, Best Actress (Maribel Verdú), and Best Film. Nominated for the Discovery Award at the Toronto International Film Festival. Nominated for Best Foreign Film at the César Awards. "From Spain, here's a miracle of fairy tale repurposing: a version of the Brothers Grimm's 'Snow White,' set in Spanish bullfighting country in the late 1920s. Writer-director Pablo Berger's BLANCANIEVES goes all the way with its concept, and then further." - Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
