Snow White and the seven bullfighters

IMAGINE SNOW White and The Seven Dwarfs transported to 1920s Spain and the world of bullfighting? Welcome to Spanish film Blancanieves.

Blancanieves, which will be screened by the Galway Film Society this Sunday at 8.15pm, centres on Carmen, the daughter of a famous bullfighter.

Carmen is forced to live under the tyrannical rule of her evil stepmother, Encarna. She escapes and joins a troupe of bullfighting dwarves, where her beauty and natural talent in the ring attract notices from the press. But soon the news reaches Encarna, who at last knows where to find Carmen, and she prepares for the final showdown.

The film won the Special Jury Prize at the 2013 Jameson Dublin International Film Festival and Best Film at the Bucharest International Film Festival 2012.

Tickets are available from the Town Hall on 091 - 569777 or www.tht.ie
