Screening with short film Phosphorus Souls.

On a windswept Spanish plain, The Bride (a stunning Inma Cuesta, Snow White, Cousinhood) prepares for marriage to a wealthy, handsome young land baron (Asier Etxeandia) as her lifelong love Leonardo (Alex Garcia) pines from afar, his quiet yearning threatening to explode a fragile peace in a village once torn apart by a decades-long blood feud. As the wedding day arrives, simmering tensions quietly erupt, forcing The Bride to choose between following obligation or challenging fate, her decision leading to an unexpected and devastating climax.

Based on Garcia Lorca’s timeless tragedy Bodas de sangre (Blood Wedding), writer/director Paula Ortiz’s follow up to her acclaimed debut feature From Your Window to Mine is a visually sumptuous, emotionally rich feast, at once a classically rendered story of the unyielding strength of love and a stirring testament to the power of women to choose their own destinies.

Título: La Novia

Mientras una novia se prepara para su boda con un rico y agraciado barón, su verdadero amor está a la espera, amenazando con hacer explotar la frágil tranquilidad de un pueblo dividido por una disputa de larga data entre dos familias. Basada en Las bodas de sangre, la tragedia inmemorial de García Lorca, La novia de Paula Ortiz es un elocuente testimonio sobre mujeres que elijen su propio destino.
