Art Paper 1

During this semester I attended the Miami International Film Festival. It was located at the Regal Cinema in South Beach on March 14. I loved the scenery of the movies and how grand it was inside. Before going in to watch the movie I got to take a walk around Lincoln Road, appreciating the beauty of our city. I was so impressed by the inside of the theatre that I cannot wait to go back.

It was located in Zugarramurdi, this town in Spain that was allegedly where witchcraft was founded. The setting fits like a glove to the movie since it’s about these women that are witches and they even use this cave located in Zugarramurdi for this ritual. This film was definitely leaning more towards
