Carlos Saura's (Carmen, Blood Wedding) touching and thought provoking 1976 work remains one of the most important films in Spanish cinema.

Released when Spain was just coming out of 40 years of Fascist rule it was nominated for a Golden Globe, and won the Grand Prize at Cannes in 1977.

Cria Cuervos (English translation: Raise Ravens) centres on an amazing performance by the young actress Ana Torrent (Spirit Of The Beehive, The Haunting) as the disturbed eight year old girl living in Madrid with her two sisters and mourning the death of her mother, played by an ethereal Geraldine Chaplin, whom she conjures as a ghost.

  • Carlos Saura in Conversation (2001): onstage interview at BFI Southbank in which Saura talks in detail about the film's production and reception, and discusses the challenges of working as a filmmaker in Franco's Spain.
