Screening: La lengua de las mariposas (Butterfly?s Tongue) Dir Jos? Luis Cuerda / Spain 1999 95 mins / Spanish with English subtitles?? A poignant drama about the developing friendship between a young boy and his Republican teacher, cut short by the onset of the Civil War. Spring, 1936. Inspirational teacher Don Gregorio (Fern?n-Gomez) believes that the fields and forests of Galicia can teach his young students as much as the books in their classroom. Eight-year-old Moncho (Lozana) learns about nature, poetry and above all integrity, from his kindly maestro. But this charmed existence will be smashed forever by the outbreak of war. Beautifully shot and directed by Cuerda (also producer for Alejandro Amen?bar), the essence of the film can be found in Azcona?s interweaving adaptation of Manuel Rivas? stories (from ?Qu? me quieres, amor?) and in the pivotal performances of the veteran actor and the amazing youngster, in his cinematic d?but.
