PAN’S LABYRINTH / EL LABERINTO DEL FAUNO (35mm)
First show: November 24
Set against the backdrop of the a post-Civil War Spain, PAN’S LABYRINTH is a visually stunning Spanish-language fairy tale with a dark heart. In 1944, a young girl named Ofelia avoids a bleak home life–including an ill, pregnant mother and a new, murderous military step-father–by retreating into an imaginative world of fairies and monsters. After ignoring a warning against entering the mysterious labyrinth near her new home, Ofelia meets a faun who sends her off on a wonderfully eerie journey. According to the faun, Ofelia must complete three tasks to resume her position as the long-lost Princess Moanna, a seemingly perfect offer in contrast with Ofelia’s grim waking life. When tragedy strikes and Ofelia finds her way deeper into a dark fantasy world, del Toro’s mesmerizing production and a haunting score by Javier Navarette take over, culminating in an unforgettable conclusion.
Directed by Guillermo del Toro, Spain, 118 min. 35mm print courtesy of Warner Borthers. In Spanish with English subtitles.
