Ofelia discovers an overgrown, tumbledown labyrinth and meets an ancient faun who claims to know her true identity and secret destiny.

Trilogía de Guillermo del Toro( Visual )

2 editions published in 2016 in Multiple languages and Spanish and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Devil's Backbone: "One of the most personal films by Guillermo del Toro, The Devil's Backbone is also among his most frightening and emotionally layered. Set during the final week of the Spanish Civil War, it tells the tale of a twelve-year-old boy who, after his freedom-fighting father is killed, is sent to a haunted rural orphanage full of terrible secrets. Del Toro expertly combines gothic ghost story, murder mystery, and historical melodrama in a stylish mélange that, like his later Pan's Labyrinth, reminds us the scariest monsters are often the human ones."--Container

El norte = The North by Gregory Nava( Visual )

2 editions published in 1983 in Spanish and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Brother and sister Enrique and Rosa flee persecution at home in Guatemala and journey north, through Mexico and on to the United States, with the dream of starting a new life. It's a story that happens every day, but until Gregory Nava's groundbreaking El Norte (The North), the personal travails of immigrants crossing the border to America had never been shown in the movies with such urgent humanism. A work of social realism imbued with dreamlike imagery, El Norte is a lovingly rendered, heartbreaking story of hope and survival, which critic Roger Ebert called "a Grapes of Wrath for our time."
Cobrador : in god we trust( Visual )

3 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in Spanish and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Probablemente sea Rubem Fonseca [Minas Gerais, 1925] quien mejor ha escrito sobre la violencia contemporánea, exasperante y crispada. Tomando cuentos suyos - escritos en diferentes libros y diferentes momentos - y adaptándolos a una sola historia, - en la que todos se relacionan aunque mantienen su propia unidad, - la película "cobrador" explora ese tema dando pie a mostrar sus causas. Personajes dispersos en el espacio, desconocidos entre sí, acaban formando parte de una misma trama, de un mismo "thriller", donde no se busca saber quién es el asesino todos lo son - ya que todos están apresados por un mismo estado de cosas - un sistema - que los condiciona y aniquila. (Base de datos de películas calificadas del Ministerio de Cultura)
