TODO SOBRE PEDRO:
THE FILMS OF PEDRO ALMODÓVAR
Coinciding with the release of his new film Strange Way Of Life we shall be cherrypicking from the Spanish master’s vibrant back catalogue.
Splashing his colorful films across the post-Franco Spanish landscape with the irreverent glee of an artist arriving late to church after a long night, Pedro Almodóvar has been called the most influential Spanish filmmaker since Luis Buñuel. Beginning in the 1980s, Almodóvar started serving up provocative, candy-colored visions fraught with postmodernist insight into everything from sex and violence to religion and the dangers of good gazpacho. Sometimes shocking, sometimes controversial, Almodóvar’s films have always managed to present a new and intriguing view of his native country, shaping the attitudes of both his compatriots and a larger international audience.
Please note that these screenings will feature English subtitles.
