The 11th edition of the Spanish Cinema Week opens in Warsaw on 17 March and ends on 10 April. This program reflects the diversity of the latest Spanish Cinema while featuring the most interesting films and documentaries in recent years.

The cinematic exhibition will be held in Cracow, Katowice, Poznan, Lodz, Lublin, Gdansk, and naturally in Warsaw.  A retrospective view of the films directed by Alex de la Iglesia is alleged to steal the spotlight throughout the exhibition.

Alex de la Iglesia

Alex de la Iglesia is a revered filmmaker thanks to his expressive vanguard cinema popularized through Tarantino and Rodriguez. All three artists make films with a mixture of violence and suggestive sensuality, plus a twist of humor; together with an exaggerated narrative style, and accompanied by speedy actions. Quentin Tarantino, Rodriguez and Iglesia are also close friends.

In the course of the exhibition, Alex de la Iglesia's latest film – The Last Circus –  will make its Polish debut in theaters.

“The Last Circus”

“The Last Circus” was awarded the Silver Lion prize for Best Director and Best Script  in Venice at the IFF in 2010 by Quentin Tarantino, the President of the Jury. Moreover, the movie also received the bulk of the nominations at the Goya Awards - the most prominent film awards in Spain. It had been nominated in 15 categories including Best Film, Best Script, and Best Actor – to name just a few. The Movie will be distributed in theaters across Poland following the exhibition.

This year's Spanish Cinema Week will take place at Kinoteka and Muranow in Warsaw between the 17 and 24 in March.
