REQUIREMENTS TO BE A NORMAL PERSON
REQUISITOS PARA SER UNA PERSONA NORMAL
2015, 90 min, Spain, Dir: Leticia Dolera

Everybody tries to fit in, but few people go about it as methodically as Maria de las Montañas (writer-director Leticia Dolera), who hopes to reach normality through a seven-item checklist. Her mentally challenged younger brother (Jordi Llodrà) and overweight friend (Manuel Burque) seem to have most of the bases covered, and the success of Maria’s quest may boil down to just being herself. Brightly colored and boasting a jangly folk score from Luthea Salom, this romantic comedy is, as one might hope from its title, charmingly eccentric. Winner of the Best New Screenwriter, Cinematography and Editing Awards at the Málaga Spanish Film Festival. In Spanish with English subtitles.


U.S. Premiere!

OFF COURSE
PERDIENDO EL NORTE
2015, DeAPlaneta International, 102 min, Spain, Dir: Nacho Garcia Velilla

Hugo (Yon González) and Braulio (Julián López) both have university degrees and no jobs. They think they can escape the economic doldrums by leaving Spain for Germany, but what looked like a land of opportunity on TV presents more challenges to the two friends than they expected in this sparkling comedy. One of the most successful films of the year in Spain! In Castilian and German with English subtitles.
