Catalan director Carla Simon’s emotional feature film debut about the tough days of a young girl who has been adopted by a family, Summer 1993 made its world premiere at the Berlin Film Festival’s Generation Kplus section in February. Upon the death of her parents, her uncle and aunt take the the six year old Frida to live with them in their rural house. Unable to forget her mother, Frida spends her nights praying, and her days trying to make a place for herself in her new family. Carrying autobiographical elements, Summer 1993 portrays the inner world of Frida throughout a summer without resorting to emotional abuse.
