    • Modernized version of Garcia Lorca’s masterpiece, featuring Academy Award winner Miriam Diaz Aroca of La Belle Époque

      The movie is a beautiful visual juxtaposition of the Andalusian culture of Lorca’s play and the modern culture of London High Society.

      The classic story has been transported into modern day London where the central character, the beautiful Eva, and her ambitious husband John have no children after 4 years of marriage. Although Eva is becoming increasingly obsessed with her inability
      to become a mother, she is also conflicted by the responsibility and honor she has to the institution of marriage.

      The suspenseful and stunningly filmed thriller culminates in a shocking ending.

      Created in memory of Spanish poet/playwright Federico García Lorca on the on the 80th anniversary of his assassination by dictator Francisco Franco.
