FILM | London Spanish Film Festival . April 20th – 22nd

We once again bring to London audiences a Spring Weekend packed with recent Spanish productions, including Alex de la Iglesia’s latest film La chispa de la vida, the winner of the Goya Award for Best Animation Arrugas, the timely and poignant Cinco metros cuadrados, and a preview screening of Dominik Moll’s The Monk featuring a Franco-Spanish cast. David Trueba will visit us to present Madrid, 1987.

In parallel to the Festival’s Spring Weekend we’ll be hosting a very special event about filmmaker Carlos Saura, director of so many key Spanish films, and his passion for music, especially flamenco. He will join us for a cinema masterclass and one of his flamenco films will be screened, the superb and fascinating Carmen, which he will introduce.
