1975. Spain. Directed by Jaime Chávarri. With Felicidad Blanc, Leopoldo María Panero. A veritable cult classic, this documentary profiles the widow and children of Leopoldo Panero, an official poet of Franco's regime. The surviving family members dissect their own personal realities and that of Panero. This acerbic psychodrama, once considered "anti-family," continues to challenge notions of the sanctity of familial relationships. It is a beautiful representation of a family trying to come to terms with its own past in a Spain that was converting to democracy. New print. In Spanish; English subtitles. 95 min.
