Guillermo del Toro's THE DEVIL'S BACKBONE

After Carlos - a 12-year-old whose father has died in the Spanish Civil War - arrives at an ominous boys' orphanage, he discovers the school is haunted and has many dark secrets that he must uncover.

Dir. Guillermo del Toro. 2001, 107 mins. 35mm.
With Fernando Tielve, Eduardo Noriega, Marisa Paredes, Federico Luppi. Guillermo del Toro’s third film, The Devil’s Backbone, perfected the directorial voice that would make him a critical and popular success. Outwardly a classic ghost story with period trappings, this film about the spooky goings-on at a Spanish Civil War–era orphanage is also a full blown tragic melodrama, a mystery, a meditation on toxic masculinity and a love letter to improvised families. The movie is the subject of Guillermo del Toro's The Devil's Backbone, a new stand-alone making-of book by Matt Zoller Seitz and Simon Abrams, built around a long interview with del Toro.

All three will be present for a post-screening discussion, which will be followed by a signing in the Museum Store.

Dir. Alex Rivera. 2008, 90 mins. 16mm.
SLEEP DEALER, Alex Rivera's acclaimed 2008 sci-fi drama about humans in Mexico operating robots remotely in the United States. The screening will be followed by a discussion between the filmmaker and Cornell Tech professor Dr. Wendy Ju.
