A ´Basque Window´ at the London Spanish Film Festival
Euskara. Kultura. Mundura.
Once again, the London Spanish Film Festival, which is being held on September 22-29, will include a Basque Window, to show Basque cinema.
The festival is proud to present a particularly strong Basque Window this year. Veteran Imanol Uribe will present Lejos del mar, a film about the feelings of absence and vengeance provoked by an ETA act of terrorism, and Bárbara Goenaga will present Pikadero, by the Scottish, Basque Country-based, Ben Sharrock. Model and actor Jon Kortajarena, not exactly a newcomer to film as his debut was in Tom Ford´s A Single Man, will present the short 36 Hours and Acantilado. The Basque films Amama and Un otoño sin Berlin will also be screened at the festival.
The London Spanish Film Festival launches its 12th edition with an extraordinary line-up of recent Spanish films, most of them UK premieres and a unique opportunity to watch them in London. From enigmatic thrillers to fresh comedies, from poetic dramas to international coproductions, documentaries and promising shorts, this year´s line-up offers an insight into the compelling variety of Spanish cinema and its artists.
