In conjunction with Unflinching Vision: Goya’s Rare Prints, the Museum presents Blancanieves, the 2013 Best Film winner of the Goya Awards, Spain’s main national film award. Known in Spain as los Premios Goya, the Goya Awards are named after the artist not only because he is a notable representative of Spanish culture, but also because his visual concept is very close to film. Blancanieves tells the story of the enchanting daughter (Sofia Oria and Macarena García) of a famed matador (Daniel Giménez Cacho) who flees her wicked stepmother (Maribel Verdú), to join a band of bullfighting dwarfs in a Spanish take on the Grimm Brothers’ fairy tale Snow White. Upon learning what has become of her despised stepdaughter, the diabolical stepmother prepares to administer a punishment that will break the defiant girl’s will for good. Set in Seville in the 1920s, Blancanieves is a tribute to silent films.
