Spanish director Victor Erice made two of his country's most important and critically lauded films, [[Feature~V111360~El Espiritu de la Colmena~thespiritofthebeehive]] ([[Feature~V111360~The Spirit of the Beehive~thespiritofthebeehive]]) (1973) and Sur (The South) (1983). Erice had studied political science before entering the Instituto de Investigaciones y Experiencias Cinematográficas in 1960. Shortly after graduation in 1963, he worked as a film critic and worked on the script for [[Performer~P228894~Antonio Eceiza~antonioeceiza]]'s [[Feature~V176179~El Proximo Otoño~eleoboto]] (Next Autumn) (1963). He also collaborated on [[Performer~P106416~Miguel Picazo~miguelpicazo]]'s [[Feature~V139775~Oscuros Sueños de Agosto~oscurossuenosdeagosto]] (Dark Dreams of August) (1967). Influential producer [[Performer~P107275~Elías Querejeta~eliasquerejeta]] provided Erice his first opportunity to direct by assigning him a chance to helm one of three episodes in [[Feature~V159205~Los Desafios~losdesafios]] ([[Feature~V159205~The Challenges~losdesafios]]) (1969). Following his success with El Sur, Erice became a prolific director of television commercials and worked uncredited on numerous other feature films. In 1992, Erice reemerged on the film scene with his dream-like documentary of painter Antonio Lopez's quest for perfection, [[Feature~V186770~El Sol del Membrillo~elsoldelmembrillo]] ([[Feature~V112276~The Quince Tree Sun~sunnysideofthestreet]] or The Dream of Light). ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
