Directed by Victor Erice, The Spirit of the Beehive is widely regarded as one of the greatest Spanish films of the 1970s. Six-year-old Ana attends a traveling screening of Frankenstein in her small Castilian village. She becomes possessed by the memory of it, and is determined to find the monster herself. Visually arresting, the film is a bewitching portrait of a child’s haunted inner life.
