The next Bigas Luna Tribute will take place in New York City – rescheduled dates are TBC. Details below refer to original dates. The revised event may include some changes. 

The main weekend events will include screenings of the entire ‘Iberian Portraits’ trilogy, cava reception and introductions by Bigas Luna specialists. The trilogy will be screened again throughout the following week.

Over the past six years the Bigas Luna Tribute has collaborated with over a dozen cinemas and 4 festivals in 17 cities and 7 countries around the world. We have hosted almost 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 with an opportunity 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.

The main events at QUAD CINEMA in NYC are as follows:

7 pm Jamón jamón (1992) with intro by art curator Betty Bigas and Professor Santiago Fouz-Hernández (Durham University) followed by Q&A + cocktail reception.
