The Bigas Luna Tribute announces a new in-person event in New York City this month (March 18-22) at Quad Cinema in Manhattan (34 W. 13th St, NY10011).
This event was originally scheduled for March 2020 but postponed for 2 years due to the pandemic.
'Iberian Nights: Bigas Luna's Passion Trilogy' will include screenings of the ‘Iberian Portraits’ trilogy, a drinks reception, introductory talks and Q&A sessions with Bigas Luna specialists, including Santiago Fouz Hernández (Durham University), Carolina Sanabria (Universidad de Costa Rica) and Gerardo Dapena (independent scholar based in New York).
Over the past seven years, the Bigas Luna Tribute has collaborated with over a dozen cinemas and 4 festivals in 18 cities and 7 countries around the world. We have hosted over 70 screenings so far, attracting large audiences and many institutional and commercial sponsorships. The events provide an opportunity to enjoy the important work of one of Spain’s most iconic filmmakers and to learn more about the context in which they were produced, in conversation with some of his collaborators and international academics that have researched the films.
This year we are celebrating 30 years since the release of Jamón Jamón, the film that launched the careers of 2022 Academy Award nominees and past winners Javier Bardem and Penélope Cruz.
