El País: Catalan film to represent Spain at 2018 Oscars
Summer 1993, a biographical drama from first-time director Carla Simón, will compete for Best Foreign Language Film
Summer 1993 — or Verano 1993 in Spanish, Estiu 1993 in Catalan — will be the Spanish representative in the race for the Oscar for 2018 Best Foreign Language Film. The movie, which was filmed in Catalan, answers two questions, according to its director Carla Simón: how do you explain death to a child? And how do you understand what’s happening around you, the silence and the gestures?
