HOLY CAMP!
LA LLAMADA
2017, Film Factory, 108 min, Spain, Dir: Javier Ambrossi, Javier Calvo

In this delightful musical, aspiring teen reggaeton singers María (Macarena García) and Susana (Anna Castillo) just want to have a good time, and a mandatory trip to the Catholic camp La Brújula seems far from fun. But after an encounter with God (Richard Collins-Moore) - who turns out to have a musical side of his own - the girls find that their dreams and their religion might not be mutually exclusive. A smash hit in Spain, HOLY CAMP! earned five Goya nominations and a win for Best Original Song (“La Llamada”).


THE BRIDE
LA NOVIA
2015, Outsider Pictures, 96 min, Dir: Paula Ortiz

Federico Garcia Lorca’s classic play Blood Wedding serves as the basis for this engrossing drama. Feroz winner Inma Cuesta plays the title character, whose upcoming marriage is derailed by the arrival of an old flame (Álex García). Shot in Turkey by cinematographer Migue Amoedo, the film’s occasionally fantastical imagery elevates a tragic love triangle into the realm of poetry. With Luisa Gavasa. In Spanish with English subtitles.
