A journey through the films made between 1976 and 1986 by one of the cult authors of international cinema, rediscovered in recent years.
In his five historical feature films – “Manuela” (1975), “Life in Seville” (1978), “Facing the Sea” (1979), “Corridas de alegria” (1982) and ” Rocío e José” (1982) – García-Pelayo’s retrospective is articulated in the program. of six thematic sessions with projections that involve other contemporary artists and filmmakers, opening up a transversal and intergenerational dialogue with the work of García-Pelaio. Thus, the cycle is built on the enthusiasm that this author has aroused in the younger generation, which will reformulate yet another history of Spanish cinema.
