Spanish teachers take note! The Academy Award winning Pan's Labyrinth is set in Spain in 1944 during Francisco Franco's fascist dictatorship. While not explicitly drawn from a single source, it is a unique kind of adaptation: it uses the timelssness of fairytales to examine an important episode of world history.
