Emoción Pura: Cinema from Spain
Our Cinema from Spain 2018 edition brings an exceptional array of unique marvels waiting for you to discover, dive into, and yes, most likely fall in love with, over and over again.
A few of the reasons American audiences have long been in love with Spanish Cinema are the elements of surprise, the vivid imagination and the larger than life characters that define Spanish film. In these films, everything and everyone is put to the test: races against time, seeking love (or dealing with a lack thereof), and fervently chasing dreams and desires. Once the screen lights up, something unique and fantastic unravels in front of our eyes and we are swept away by the unconventional comedies, sophisticated historical dramas, delicious culinary treats, and terrifying horror films that Spain makes so, so well.
