By Frederico Garcia Lorca
Directed by Doreen Bechtol
Based on a true story of a young woman who abandons her husband on their wedding day, Lorca’s 20th-century classic captures the elemental forces of buried passions, betrayal, and revenge. Blood Wedding lyrically portrays young lovers who ultimately resist a life prescribed by family, community, and culture.
