Festival Of New Spanish Cinema Chicago 2009Nov 13–Nov 19
With films by such veteran filmmakers as Juan Luis Iborra, Javier Fesser and Gabriel Velázquez shown side-by-side with cutting edge debut productions from the newest generation including Albert Arizza, Irene Cardona, David Planell, Santiago Zannou, and Miguelanxo Prado, there is much to relish in this year’s festival. Presenting new and outrageous interpretations of classic genres including melodrama, thriller and animation, this year’s styles range from superb examples of Spain’s offbeat thrillers like Ramirez and the brutal, wrenching fairy tales Camino and De Profundis, to socially engaged cinema like A Fiancé for Yasmina or One-Armed Trick.
The Chicago festival is the last stop of our tour in the U.S
