In anticipation of the upcoming release of Guillermo del Toro’s new film, THE SHAPE OF WATER, we bring you back a double feature of his twisted fairy tale films, PAN’S LABYRINTH and THE DEVIL’S BACKBONE. Both in 35mm!

Presented by RoxCine and MiDNiTES for MANiACS and hosted by Jesse Hawthorne Ficks

PAN’S LABYRINTH (EL LABERINTO DEL FAUNO)
Set against the backdrop of the a post-Civil War Spain, PAN’S LABYRINTH is a visually stunning Spanish-language fairy tale with a dark heart. In 1944, a young girl named Ofelia avoids a bleak home life–including an ill, pregnant mother and a new, murderous military step-father–by retreating into an imaginative world of fairies and monsters. After ignoring a warning against entering the mysterious labyrinth near her new home, Ofelia meets a faun who sends her off on a wonderfully eerie journey. According to the faun, Ofelia must complete three tasks to resume her position as the long-lost Princess Moanna, a seemingly perfect offer in contrast with Ofelia’s grim waking life. When tragedy strikes and Ofelia finds her way deeper into a dark fantasy world, del Toro’s mesmerizing production and a haunting score by Javier Navarette take over, culminating in an unforgettable conclusion.

Directed by Guillermo del Toro, Spain, 118 min. 35mm print courtesy of Warner Brothers. In Spanish with English subtitles.

THE DEVIL’S BACKBONE (EL ESPINAZO DEL DIABLO)
Violent young boys and desperate adults alike harbor secrets in THE DEVIL’S BACKBONE,a horror-drama set in an overcrowded (and possibly haunted) Spanish orphanage in 1939. Young Carlos, the orphanages’ newest arrival, struggles to fit in at a strange place where hope and dread are signified in turn by a stash of hidden gold and an undetonated Spanish Civil War bomb in the courtyard. Soon Carlos strikes up an unexpected friendship with a bully named Jaime, and is visited by a ghostly apparition who warns him of the deaths of many. A sprawling cast of characters, including administrators with hidden relationships and boys with ill intentions, makes for a pastiche of dark emotion and visual lyricism, all of which turns horrific when the story of a missing boy named Santi comes to light.

Directed by Guillermo del Toro, Spain, 106 min. 35mm print courtesy of Sony Pictures Classics. In Spanish with English subtitles.
