film synopsis

Sent to live with her uncle and his family following her mother’s untimely death, six-year-old Frida acts out her unspoken pain in unfamiliar surroundings in this astonishing autobiographical debut feature from writer/director Carla Simón.

Lonely and afraid, and struggling not to let it show, Frida (Laia Artigas in an impressive debut) moves to the country home of her Uncle Esteve, his wife Marga, and their three-year-old daughter Anna. Unsure of her place in a family she barely knows, Frida uneasily feels her way around this strange new place, acting out, telling lies and inflicting small cruelties on her new sister. Yet slowly she may rediscover what it is to be loved again. Winner of the Best First Feature and the Generation Kplus International Jury awards at the 2017 Berlinale, Summer 1993 is an unforgettable film of disarming authenticity, free of sentimentality and beautifully crafted in every way.

In competition for the FIPRESCI Prize and the Cine Latino Award.
