The House of the Spirits, 2019.
Based on Isabel Allende’s best-selling novel, Caridad Svich’s "The House of the Spirits" follows three generations of the Trueba family—their loves, their ambitions, their spiritual quests, and their place in the post-colonial social and political turmoil embroiling their South American country. Directed by Michael Socrates Moran, this darkly poetic adaptation incorporates magical realism to weave the personal and the political into a universal story of love, magic, and fate.
