This spring the {​% location %}​ Meadows Museum {​% endlocation %}​ is proud to collaborate with Dallas Film to present a series of films that deal with the effects of Franco's dictatorship. Each of these in-person screenings includes a brief talk to introduce the film and relate it to themes in the museum’s current exhibition, In the Shadow of Dictatorship: Creating the Museum of Spanish Abstract Art.

*While not every film in the series has an MPAA rating, they are all intended for mature audiences only.

Thursday, March 30 | 7:00 p.m.: Parallel Mothers / Madres paralelas Protected content . directed by Pedro Almodóvar

In Parallel Mothers the acclaimed Spanish film director Pedro Almodóvar confronts the legacy of the Franco era for the first time. Two single women, both pregnant by accident, meet in the hospital where they are going to give birth. While middle-aged Janis is happy about her pregnancy, adolescent Ana is afraid. The few words they exchange will create a close bond between the two, which by chance develops, complicates, and changes their lives. The story is framed within the larger context of Franco’s regime and deals with intergenerational grief in post-Franco Spain.
