The Best in Spanish Cinema Comes to the Regent Street Cinema this April with the LONDON SPANISH FILM FESTIVAL


08 April 2019

LONDON SPANISH FILM FESTIVAL

Screenings at REGENT STREET CINEMA

Taking place between 12 – 14 APRIL 2019

This April sees the LONDON SPANISH FILM FESTIVAL come to the REGENT STREET CINEMA with ANA BY DAY, FORMENTERA LADY and many others!

ANA BY DAY will screen at Regent Street Cinema on Friday 12th April at 6.15pm followed with a Q&A with actress Ingrid García Jonsson.

Synopsis
Ana is a young woman unsatisfied with her life. She feels alienated, out of place, and her state of confusion only increases when she discovers that another woman, identical to her, has taken her place in the family and then in all aspects of life. Stripped from her family, social and work obligations, Ana feels liberated and leaves, ending up in a guests house and a nightclub full of colourful and strange characters. Andrea Jaurrieta is a graduate from Barcelona’s ESCAC and in this her first feature film, she explores identity and the limits of freedom, enabling García Jonsson an inspiring and nuanced performance.

 

 

FORMENTERA LADY will receive its UK Premiere at Regent Street Cinema on Sunday 14th April at 4pm.

Synopsis
Formentera has been for decades a hippie refuge and it is here that Samuel lives. An ageing man, he has been trying to avoid responsibilities and commitments and making a precarious living off his banjo playing, smoking and drinking too much. One day his daughter arrives by surprise with her son and with the intention of leaving the ten year old child with Samuel while she goes to France to try a new job. Sacristán delivers, as usual, a superb performance as a battered man who realises his failures in life. This is the début feature film of Pau Durà, a well established actor, who had previously directed a number of shorts. The film, which shares the title with a song by King Crimson, benefits from a beautiful as well as realistic photography.

 

 

Other titles screening at the cinema include YULI, THE SILENCE OF OTHERS, THE DISTANCES followed with a Q&A with the director, and THE REALM.
