During the aftermath of the Spanish Civil War, a young girl named Ofelia journeys with her mother to the countryside to join Ofelia’s new stepfather, Captain Vidal. While the sadistic Vidal hunts members of the republican resistance that remain hidden in the nearby mountains, Ofelia explores her surroundings, encountering a faun who claims that her true identity is that of a legendary lost princess. Challenged to complete three dangerous tasks in order to return to her underground kingdom, Ofelia oscillates between the menacing natures of both reality and fantasy.
This screening will be followed by an informal discussion in the Cafe Bar about the themes explored in Pan's Labyrinth
