The film premiered at the San Sebastian Film Festival last year and Netflix swooped in to acquire its global rights shortly after; the streamer will debut the film in the U.S. on November 6.

The film spans three decades beginning at the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War, chronicling a country taken by fascism.

It was nominated for 15 Goyas, Spain’s national cinema awards, winning two: best actress for Belén Cuesta and Best Sound.

The deadline for International Oscar submissions is December 1. The shortlist for the International Oscar will be unveiled on February 9 and nominations will be announced March 15, before the 2021 Academy Awards on April 25.
