“Spain and the Oscars” | BLANCANIEVES / SNOW WHITE
This fall, as the Meadows Museum celebrates American enthusiasm for Spain in the exhibition Spanish Light: Sorolla in American Collections, DIFF is proud to collaborate on a selection of Spanish films that were considered for an Academy Award.
In this retelling of the Snow White fairy tale, a matador’s daughter flees from her wicked stepmother and joins a traveling band of bullfighting dwarfs. She adopts the name Blancanieves and mesmerizes crowds with her talent and beauty in the arena. Set in a romantic vision of 1920s Andalusia, BLANCANIEVES is a tribute to silent films. It was also Spain’s official entry for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar for 2012.
