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 GIANT
HANDIA
2017, Film Factory, 114 min, Spain, Dir: Aitor Arregi, Jon Garaño

In this gripping period piece based on actual events, veteran Martín (Joseba Usabiaga) makes a shocking discovery upon returning home from the First Carlist War: his younger brother Joaquín (Eneko Sagardoy) has become the world’s tallest man. As the brothers try to profit from Joaquín’s worsening condition with a circus act travelling across Europe, they face a host of obstacles that test the limits of their beliefs and loyalties. A moving drama about sibling relationships, THE GIANT won an impressive 10 Goya Awards, including Best Original Screenplay, Best Original Score and Best New Actor (Sagardoy). “…[A] film at once fantastic, allegorical and deeply poetic.” - Luis Martínez, El Mundo.
