La novia will simultaneously screen in cinemas across Europe and all the way to Curaçao. Both film and Q&A can be also be viewed online via Festival Scope.
The countryside of Southern Spain, somewhere in the 1930s. The earth is scorched, the houses are dilapidated. The Bride (La novia) is preparing for her impending marriage to the Bridegroom. But the bond between the Bride and childhood friend Leonardo is stronger than anything and the Bride is torn between passion and duty.
This visually brilliant adaptation won no less than 6 Feroz awards, the Spanish equivalent to the Golden Globes.
The Bride is the most ferocious film at this year's Feroz Awards.
Directly after the film, director Paula Ortiz and actress Luisa Gavasa will take the stage for the interactive Twitter Q&A via #livecinema.
