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.

in 2022 we are celebrating 30 years since the release of Jamón Jamón, the film that launched the careers of Javier Bardem and Penélope Cruz. Both actors were also Academy Awards nominees in 2022.
