Get REEL Film Series: The Devil's Backbone (El Espinazo Del Diablo)

Get Reel gets updated. This fall, filmmaker George Ozuna curates a selection of four films related to the artist Chuck Ramirez. Ozuna introduces each selection, discusses connections to Ramirez, and afterward offers Q & A. Wine and refreshments are available 30 minutes before each screening.

A mournful and beautiful ghost story set in the years following the Spanish Civil War, The Devil’s Backbone is considered Guillermo Del Toro’s most personal film. Young Carlos arrives at an ominous orphanage and soon wonders which are most horrifying, the living or the dead. 

2001. Spanish with English subtitles. 106 min. Color. R. Warner Sogefilms A.I.E.

Some films may not be appropriate for all audiences. All Get Reel films shown in the Chiego Lecture Hall, unless otherwise noted. Free with Museum admission. General admission to the Museum is free on Thursday nights.
