THE INVISIBLE
INVISIBLES
2020, 84 min, Spain, Dir: Gracia Querejeta

Elsa (Emma Suárez), Julia (Adriana Ozores), and Amelia (Nathalie Poza) are three women in their fifties, who meet every week to exercise together in a park. On these brisk morning walks, the friends discuss their personal lives and careers, their aspirations, and their deepest secrets. Centering on the witty dialogue and scathing observations of these aging women, the film explores their shared frustrations in a society in which mature women seemingly become invisible. “…the film turns into a cry against discrimination, a demand for attention from the egotistical and absurd system that we’re living in, and a beautiful ode to friendship.” - Alfonso Rivera, Cineuropa.


INSTANT LOVE
AMOR EN POLVO
2019, 79 min, Spain, Dir: Juanjo Moscardó, Suso Imbernón

Feeling trapped in a sexless marriage, Pablo (Enrique Arce) and Blanca (Lorena López) decide to try out swinging as a way to rekindle their romance. The couple arranges to meet at a bar with two of their single friends, Mia (Macarena Gómez) and Lucas (Luis Miguel Seguí), but end up missing the date when they get caught up in a heated argument that leads them to reconsider everything that they had believed about sex, love and married life. Meanwhile at the bar, Mia and Lucas flirt and begin to fall in love. This romantic comedy follows the two couples over the course of the night as one weathers a crisis and the other ignites a new flame. “Macarena Gómez shines in her role as a liberated woman.” - Alfonso Rivera, Cineuropa


TUCKER AND DALE VS EVIL
2020, Magnet Releasing, 89 min, Canada, Dir: Eli Craig

This hilariously gory, good-spirited horror comedy does for killer rednecks what SHAUN OF THE DEAD did for zombies. Tucker and Dale are two best friends on vacation at their dilapidated mountain house who are mistaken for murderous backwoods hillbillies by a group of obnoxious, preppy college kids. When one of the students gets separated from her friends, the boys try to lend a hand, but as the misunderstanding grows, so does the body count. Tyler Labine and Alan Tudy excel as the titular antiheroes, whose attempts to enjoy their holiday are punctuated by eye-poppingly violent set pieces.
