Viridiana: dir Luis Buñuel Spain (1961)
8 October @ 7.00 pm - 8.30 pmFree
Novice nun Viridiana (Silvia Pinal) does her best to maintain her Catholic principles, but her lecherous uncle (Fernando Rey) and a motley assemblage of paupers force her to confront the limits of her idealism. Winner of the Palme d’or at the 1961 Cannes Film Festival but banned in Spain and denounced by the Vatican, Viridiana is a miraculous study of cruelty and compassion that is regarded by many as Buñuel’s masterpiece.
