The 1980s were a fascinating decade for Spain. Franco was dead, the repressive regime had been dismantled and for the first time in its history, Spain breathed a climate of artistic freedom. In the cinema, the 80s were a decade of dramatic change. The ‘New Cinema’ was led by the iconoclastic Pedro Almodovar and for the first time the cinema could relate truthfully the story of the Spanish Civil Way, José Luis Garci won an Oscar and filmmakers from the 60s and 70s had a new lease of life. Mario Camus made a towering masterpiece denouncing the inhumane practices of Spain’s aristocracy in ‘The Holy Innocents’. Join us for an action-packed day as we chart the history of an unforgettable period in Spanish cinema.
