Made in Spain: Spanish cinema’s annual showcase
Monday, September 22nd, 2014

Eleven films are making up the programme for the Made in Spain section at the 62nd San Sebastian Film Festival which once again is showing a selection of some of the most outstanding films made in Spain over the last year and providing foreign visitors with anexcellent overview of the best of contemporary Spanish cinema.

The programme includes 10.000 Km by Carlos Marques- Marcet, about the trials of a longdistance relationship, which won four prizes at the Malaga Film festival, including best film and which is also on the shortlist of the 3 Spanish films submitted for the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film; Artico by Gabriel Velázquez, a powerful, stark drama about a couple of twentysomething losers, which won a special mention in the Generation section at this year’s Berlin Film Festival; and Carmina y amén, the sequel of Carmina o revienta directed once again by Paco León.

Made in Spain will also be screening Ciutat morta by Xavier Artigas and Xapo Ortega, a non-fiction film that won the Silver Biznaga for best documentary at Malaga and the only one in this section that has still not been released in Spain; Hermosa juventud by Jaime Rosales that was shown for the first time in the Un Certain Regard section at Cannes; and Ocho apellidos vascos by Emilio Martínez-Lázaro, the comedy that has surprisingly become the biggest box-office hit in the history of Spanish cinema.

The section will also be an opportunity to see Open Windows, the latest film by Nacho Vigalondo starring Elijah Wood and Sasha Grey; the documentary Sobre la marxa by Jordi Morató; and Stella cadente, which represents Lluís Miñarro’s debut in fictional cinema, and competed in the Official Section at the Rotterdam Festival.

The section is rounded off by the romantic comedy The Food Guide To Love by Dominic Harari and Teresa De Pelegrí, set in Dublin, and the documentary Yo decido. El Tren de la Libertad, that focuses on the protests against the recent draft bill to restrict the right to abortion. a.o.
