Spanish Cinema Now Returns To Lincoln Center

Written by: FFT Webmaster | December 7th, 2011

One of the most popular programs on the Film Society of Lincoln Center calendar returns this week with Spanish Cinema Now, the Society’s annual showcase of new films from Spain. The series, which will celebrate its 20th anniversary next year, has a loyal audience following and is an opportunity for Spanish filmmakers, celebrated in their homeland but less visible in North America, to present their work. This year, the series opens on December 9 with EXTRATERRESTRIAL, a hip alien invasion film by cult director Nacho Vigolondo. Other series highlights include the Catalan documentary BARCELONA BEFORE, the magic realist film CREBINSKY, the buddy comedy COUSINHOOD and the biopic JOSE AND PILAR, a Spanish-Portuguese co-production that offers a dramatic portrait of the final years of Nobel Prize winning author José Saramago and his wife Pilar del Rio. The series also will unveil a 10-film tribute to veteran director Luis García Berlanga, who passed away in November 2010. Most of the films are making their US premieres at the event and will feature lively q+a sessions with the directors and actors. For information on the full line-up, visit:
