Dr Sarah Wright and Dr Lidia Meras will be leading a study day at the BFI in January 2017 on the work of Icíar Bollaín.

The study day, intended for students and teachers, will explore Bollain’s films from her early work as a child star in films such as El sur, to later films such as Flores de otro mundo and En tierra extraña and Te doy mis ojos.

Icíar Bollaín’s film, También la lluvia, is a set text in the new A Level specifications and will feature in depth during this event, including an afternoon screening and discussion around this politically committed work.

The study day will take place at BFI Southbank on 20 January, 10:30 – 15:45.
