Following six-year-old Ana, her life with her aloof and detached family, and her fascination with an old Frankenstein film, this highly symbolic work was created not long after the victory of Franco's forces.
As Victor Erice's 1973 directorial debut, The Spirit of the Beehive continues to be regarded not only as one of his best films, but a masterpiece of Spanish cinema. Set in a remote Castilian village, the films' carefully considered scenes combine striking visuals and subtle symbolism to offer a veiled critique of Spanish society that cleared Franco's censorship office.
In conjunction with the opening of Noah Doely: By the Light, Museum galleries will remain open until 7:00 p.m. on Friday, November 1. View the exhibition for the first time, and hear Doely speak on the construction of his works, and the relationship between November's featured film and his larger photographic practice.
