Sat 19 April @ 21:00 – PAN’S LABYRINTH (2006) *Network Premiere

Set in 1944, at the end of the Spanish Civil War, Carmen (Ariadna Gil) moves with her young daughter Ofelia (Ivana Baquero) into the country after remarrying brutal Captain Vidal (Sergi Lopez). Finding her harsh new life hard to bear, Ofelia seeks refuge in a mysterious maze next to the house. There a magical faun (Hellboy’s Doug Jones) reveals she is the long lost princess of an enchanted kingdom and to discover the truth about herself she must accomplish three perilous tasks nothing has prepared her to face. These mirror her soul-destroying existence helping her cope with the perversions of innocence Fascism represents in this ravishingly presented pitch-black fable for adults.
