“Estiu 1993” to Represent Spain at 90th Edition of Academy Awards

MADRID – Spain’s Film Academy announced Thursday that “Estiu 1993” (“Summer 1993”) had been put forward to represent the country as a possible nominee for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in the 90th edition of the Oscars.

The film, which is director Carla Simon’s debut work, is a delicate portrait of childhood grief and mourning that has already received several international awards, including for best debut work at the Berlin International Film Festival and the Bizanaga de Oro for best picture at the Malaga Film Festival.

Critically acclaimed since its premiere at the BIFF, it tells the story of the first summer that six-year-old Frida, played by Laia Artigas, has to spend with her adoptive family after her parents die of AIDS.

Despite the rawness of the subject matter, Simon’s creation is luminous and cathartic for audiences.

In Spain, it has already made 600,000 euros ($719,000) at the box office and been watched over 94,000 times.

Actress Anna Castillo made Thursday’s announcement at a ceremony at the Film Academy, alongside the institution’s President, Yvonne Blake.
