“The Other Spanish Cinema” is a term used to describe a branch of Spanish film production done by a group of early 21st-century filmmakers. It is largely the result of the digital revolution and new narrative models aimed at modern-day viewers, i.e. people who have already assimilated postmodernism. The quality and representativeness of the films has been acknowledged through their participation in festivals and the creation of a new film culture that has reshaped cinephilia. The series “Nuevas cinefilias: The Spirit of Resistance in the ‘Other Spanish Cinema’” aims to introduce the Greek public to this new aspect of Spain’s most independent and creative film production.
All films will be available online, free of charge. Each film will be screened from 9 p.m. every Friday in November and will be available for 48 hours, on the dates shown below. All films will be screened with Greek subtitles.
The event is organized in cooperation with the Instituto Cervantes, the Embassy of Spain in Athens, the Festival de Sevilla, and FeCHA.
