El desencanto (The Disenchantment, Jaime Chávarri, 1976)

7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


The newly subtitled film is a national classic, valued and remembered for both the role it played in Spain’s transition to democracy and for the Paneros’ singular strangeness. (97 mins., DCP)

This special screening is timed with the release of Aaron Shulman’s book The Age of Disenchantments: The Epic Story of Spain’s Most Notorious Literary Family and the Long Shadow of the Spanish Civil War. Now on sale in the Wexner Center Store, the work was expanded from an essay Shulman wrote about the film in the October 2015 issue of The Believer.
