British Film Institute
On Friday 11th January, two Year 13 Spanish students had the privilege of visiting London's British Film Institute at Southbank.
Students have been studying Guillermo del Toro's 'El laberinto del Fauno', a film focusing on the aftermath of the Spanish Civil War, as part of their A level studies.
The day consisted of experts from the Royal Holloway University talking to the students about Spanish film and the Spanish Civil War. The students learnt a lot of new information related to the role of women and oppression during Franco's regime and about his Falangist political party.
To end the visit, students were treated to a cinematic screening of the film and were lucky to have experts in the field to deliver a Q&A session with us.
