Contemporary version of García Lorca’s masterpiece, featuring Academy Award winner Miriam Díaz Aroca of La Belle Époque
YERMA is a gorgeous visual juxtaposition of the Andalusian culture of Lorca’s play and modern London High Society.
This timeless story has been transported into contemporary London where the central character, the beautiful Eva, and her ambitious husband still have no children after 4 years of marriage. Eva is becoming increasingly obsessed with her inability to become a mother and yet she is conflicted by the responsibility and honor she has to the institution of marriage.
The suspenseful and stunningly filmed thriller culminates in a shocking ending. Created in memory of Spanish poet/playwright Federico García Lorca on the 80th anniversary of his assassination by dictator Francisco Franco.
