PAIN AND GLORY

Thursday 3 October: 1500 & 2030

An aging film director attempts to reconcile himself with his past by looking back on his life.

Salvador Mallo, a film director in his physical decline, finds the urgent need to recount his past: his childhood in the 60s, when he emigrated with his parents to a village in Valencia in search of prosperity; his first desire; his first adult love in the Madrid of the 80s; the pain of the breakup of that love while it was still alive and intense and writing as the only therapy to forget the unforgettable; his early discovery of cinema; and the void, the infinite void that creates the incapacity for him to keep on making films. As he searches for his salvation, he thinks about creation, and the difficulty of separating it from one’s own life and the passions that give it meaning and hope.

Spanish drama starring Antonio Banderas and Penelope Cruz. The 21st feature film from Pedro Almodóvar, one of Spain’s most celebrated filmmakers with numerous accolades to his name including an Academy Award®, four BAFTAs, Goyas and over 100 further wins and nominations.
