My Spanish is a bit rusty after having spent some weeks in Austria during the summer break, which was great as I could communicate in my mother tongue 24/7. At the end of my stay I even thought my German had improved – I am of course referring to street German rather than to the German you find in course books.
Anyway, it is now high time to invest a bit of TLC to my slowly retreating Spanish skills and what better way, than by going to see a Spanish movie.
Check out the program of the 8th London Spanish Film Festival, which will take place at Cine Lumiere, South Kensington, from 28th September- 10th October 2012. Some screenings also take place at International House, Instituto Cervantes.
This is a unique opportunity to view recent Spanish films, most of them are in fact UK premiers and there is something for everyone: engaging thriller, comedies, dramas, action movies, documentaries and shorts. Also, many of the films will be presented by their director and actors!!
I am looking forward to the “Acting Almodovar” series (at Cine Lumiere), in particular to the on-stage conversation with Marisa Paredes and Antonia San Juan with Prof. Maria Delgado on Monday 1st October, 6.30 and the Q&A with Marisa Paredes after the screening of La Flor de mi Secreto on Tuesday, 2nd October, 8.30 pm
