Travel Tip: Pop Culture and Cinema in United States
Spanish Cinema Now

Spanish Cinema Now
NEW YORK  •  Walter Reade Theater  •  Ongoing
Eleventh Edition of popular snnual deries features 24 Feature and 7 Short Films, including Demons at High Noon: The Movie World of Alex de la Iglesia, a sidebar of 6 films by the young Spanish director.

Several stars and directors associated with these year's films will be present during the series to introduce their work, including actress Carmen Maura; directors Alex de la Iglesia, Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, and Carlos Saura; and composer José Nieto. (Nieto will introduce a brief reel of clips from some of his films and discuss his singular approach to creating scores for the movies before the December 9 screening of Don Quijote).

Recent years have seen a remarkable renaissance: new talents have successfully reached Spain's younger generation, making it perhaps the most loyal of all domestic audiences for Spanish films. Established directors such as Manuel Gutiérrez Aragón, Emilio Martínez Lázaro, Imanol Uribe, and Carlos Saura continue to make fresh, provocative works, while several Spanish actors - Antonio Banderas, Penélope Cruz, Marisa Paredes, Javier Bardem, and Leonor Watling, among others - have become popular and critically acclaimed internationally.
