Spanish filmmakers know how to mine classic film genres in new and provocative ways--this year's catch is exceptional in that regard. See familiar faces and bright new stars light up the screen in the series that has brought us many of Spain's cinematic treasures including Pedro Almodovar, Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem.
Special guests expected to appear during this season include: directors Jaume Balaguero ([Rec]2), Daniel Monzón
Cell 211), Daniel Sánchez Arevalo (Gordos) and actors Elena Anaya (Hierro), Unax Ugalde (The Good News), Antonio de la Torre (Gordos).
See every film in the series - at any screening that fits your schedule - for one affordable price with an All Access Pass: $99 public; $89 senior (62+); $79 member/student. Purchase the pass online or at the box office. Certain restrictions apply.

In December, 2009, Dawes was awarded the Food Arts Silver Spoon Award in a profile written by José Andrés.
". . .That we were the first to introduce American readers to Ferran Adrià in 1997 and have ever since continued to bring you a blow-by-blow narrative of Spain's riveting ferment is chiefly due to our Spanish correspondent, Gerry "Mr. Spain" Dawes, the messianic wine and food journalist raised in Southern Illinois and possessor of a self-accumulated doctorate in the Spanish table. Gerry once again brings us up to the very minute. . ." - - Michael & Ariane Batterberry, Editor-in-Chief/Publisher and Founding Editor/Publisher, Food Arts, October 2009.
