Opening Night GALA Jan. 3rd:

Blancanieves (Snow White), Pablo Berger’s beautiful reinterpretation of the beloved Grimm’s fairy tale, which he has chosen to set in 1920’s Spain as a silent movie, is brilliant. Exquisite black and white cinematography set to a gorgeous sound track by Alfonso de Vilallonga creates an extraordinary film experience. Blancanieves is a Foreign Language Oscar nominee. The opening night reception is at the Palm Springs Art Museum and Berger will be in attendance.

Blancanieves is the spectacular silent movie adaptation of Snow White, where the daughter of a famous bullfighter is mistreated by her wicked stepmother.  When she runs away and joins a band of dwarfs, her natural bullfighting talent is discovered, but her stepmother plots to bring her down.  The film stars Maribel Verdú, Daniel Giménez Cacho, Pere Ponce, Sofía Oria,  Macarena Garcia, Ángela Molina, José María Pou and  Inma Cuesta.”  PSIFF
