Upper School Spanish Film Night

Students recently enjoyed this term’s Upper School Spanish Film and Pizza night. Head of Spanish Mr Cameron Pauls tells us more:

“This term’s Upper School Spanish Film Night saw a jam packed Ashburton Hall of eager A level and IB students enjoying a Antonio Cuadri’s beautifully shot film, Eres Mi Hereo (You’re my hero). A story set in the 1970’s about Ramón, a 13 year old boy, who has never established any real friendships because his father frequently moves the family due to his inability to hold down a job. When the family relocates to Seville, Ramón intends to survive school by fading into the background. Unfortunately, he becomes the target of a bully, David and his gang. A young priest watches out for the boy and teaches him lessons regarding the political climate of the time and the parallels to be made between Ramón’s experience and bullying of the Franco regime. For our students, it was an excellent opportunity to explore the themes of Social Relations, Customs and Traditions and The Spanish Dictatorship through the eyes of a young adolescent dealing with his own insecurities within turbulent times. An excellent evening was had by all.”
