Following the tremendous success of the last two editions, which attracted audiences of almost 4,000 each year, the third edition of the Recent Cinema from Spain Series will be returning to Miami, FL to host a four day Spanish film event celebrating the diversity of contemporary Spanish cinema showcasing the best of Spain’s rich, vibrant and vital films – on the big screen at the Olympia Theater located in the heart of downtown Miami. Ticket and pass holders will enjoy nightly premieres and participate in Q&A sessions with filmmakers and cast members following each film. Kicking off the event will be a red-carpet opening night gala on Thursday, November 21, 2013 followed by a VIP reception.
The program will include The nominated Goya Awards nominated thriller The Body , the wittiest recent Spanish comedy A Gun In Each Hand , the youth market Spain’s box office blockbuster Combustion and the multi-award winning mockumentary and box office sensation in Spain, Carmina or Blow Up .
I’m really looking forward to seeing, THE BODY El Cuerpo 2012 by Director: Oriol Paulo, Cast: Jose Coronado, Belen Rueda, Hugo Silva
A heady mix of classic noir, blood-chilling horror and high suspense, THE BODY is a thriller following a detective (Award winner Spanish star José Coronado) who searches for a corpse (lead actress in J.A. Bayona “The Orphanage”, Belén Rueda) which has gone missing from a morgue. A Goya Awards nominee for Best New Director, Paolo proves to be a master storyteller with this absorbing plot, which keeps viewers guessing about both the strange circumstances surrounding the victim’s death and the reasons why her body has disappeared. “…the kind of breathless, relentless genre fare whose sole aim is to generate suspense, and it pretty much succeeds.” Jonathan Holland. Variety.
