La Isla MinimaWednesday 15 August at 5.30pm at Pearse Street Library.

La Isla Mínima (Marshland), Director: Alberto Rodríguez Librero, (2014) 105 min.

At the beginning of the 80s, two teenage girls are murdered in a small Andalusian town. Two policemen, ideologically opposed, are sent from Madrid to investigate the disappearance. In a community anchored in the past, they will have to face not only a cruel murderer, but also their own ghosts.

Winner of numerous awards, including the Goya for Best Film, this suffocating police thriller with sociopolitical subplot, has been considered by critics as one of the best Spanish films of recent years.
