Wednesday February 28th 2024 Víctor Erice season

To coincide with the release of his long-awaited film Close Your Eyes (2023), which will screen on extended run from 12 April, BFI Southbank will present Of Time and Light: The Films of Víctor Erice, a small but perfectly formed season of features and shorts from a supreme poet of cinema. Titles screening throughout April will include Erice’s remarkable first feature The Spirit of the Beehive (1973), the visually stunning exploration of family secrets El sur (1983) and his portrait of the celebrated artist Antonio López, The Quince Tree Sun (1992). The season will also feature a number of short films rarely or never before screened in the UK, including a series of ‘video-letters’ exchanged between Erice and the late Abbas Kiarostami.
