Cinema Akil is kicking off a week of contemporary and classic Spanish Cinema on February 14.
The schedule begins with the 2010 crime drama ‘Pa Negre’ (Black Bread), directed by Augusti Villaronga, followed by a Q&A with the director.
Winner of multiple Gaudi Awards and Goya Awards amongst others, this feature is based on a novel by Emili Teixidor. The screenplay also takes inspiration from two other works by him, Retrat d'un assassí d'ocells and Sic transit Gloria Swanson.
His film ‘Pa Negre’ follows young boy Andreu in the Catalan countryside, where he finds the dead bodies of a man and his son in a forest. With fingers pointing to his own father, Andreau sets out to find the person responsible for the murders. (‘Pa Negre’ will also show once more on February 18.)
Tickets are available online and at the Cinema Akil box office.
