Summer 1993

As part of its Mujeres de Cine film series, the San Antonio Museum of Art will host a free outdoor screening of the critically acclaimed film Summer 1993, a 2017 coming-of-age drama from Spain written and directed by first-time feature filmmaker Carla Simón. The film was Spain’s official entry to the 2018 Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language film, although it was not chosen as one of the final five nominees. Autobiographical in nature, the story is told from the perspective of six-year-old Frida (Laia Artigas) who is sent to live with her aunt Marga (Bruna Cusí), uncle Esteve (David Verdaguer) and cousin Anna (Paula Robles) in the Catalonian countryside after the death of her mother. While there, she finds it difficult to adapt to the changes in her life and becomes a quiet observer to everything happening around her. Currently, Summer 1993 has a perfect 100 percent fresh score on Rotten Tomatoes. It’s a beautiful and poetic gem that movie lovers need to see. Simón has written an emotionally resonant narrative that is quiet in its delivery but speaks volumes on the innocence and imagination of a child and her desire for normalcy.

Chicken-on-a-Stick
Fiesta favorite chicken-on-a-stick is basically the supreme food booth snack from all of Fiesta. San Antonians look forward to eating it all year, and usually commemorate their first chicken-on-a-stick of the season with a selfie. It’s inspired chicken-on-a-stick necklaces, earrings, stickers and more from local designers, and has appeared on menus across SA so folks can get their fix. Thank goodness for that.
