Infos zu den Filmen:
* PA NEGRE (Representing Spain in the Oscar Awards): Young teenager Andreu lives in a rural area of Catalonia ravaged by the Civil War and in which anyone with an anti-fascist past falls under suspicion if wrongdoing occurs. When Andreu’s father falls into disgrace his mother sends him away to his grandmother’s house so she can try to soften-up her old suitor, the fascist mayor of the town, played by Sergi López. Driven by compelling acting and beautifully austere cinematography, this coming-of-age story triumphed at the last Goya Awards, taking Best Film, Best Director and Best Actress among others.
* HEROIS: A young publicist, with a successful professional life but with an empty personal life, finds himself on a trip against time to get to an important business meeting. During the trip, he meets a girl and, although they are very different and have opposite ways of life, they click when recalling the most mythical and emotional time of their childhood: the last summer they spent with their gang.
* BRUC. LA LLEGENDA: Inspired by real events that took place in the Catalan mountains in the 19th century, at the time of the Spanish war against Napoleon, Legend of the Soldier is about a drummer boy fighting the invaders. His drum rolls would echo in the caves and cliff sides so noisily that French soldiers would flee. After this, Napoleon himself trusts the mercenary Maraval with the mission of defeating the responsible of such humiliation. With impressive performances by the cast, specially Pérez’s outrageous villain, Benmayor’s second film is a compelling chase that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
