Pedro Almodóvar season @ BFI / until 5th October 2016

TIME AND PLACE:

Doors: various times

@ BFI Southbank, South Block, Belvedere Road, London SE1 8XT

Tickets: 3 for £21 book online (use promo code ‘Almodóvar’)

www.bfi.org.uk

The season will include on-stage appearances from directors Pedro Almodóvar and Pablo Berger, actor Rossy de Palma and fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier.

No one makes films quite like Pedro Almodóvar. His remarkable body of work embraces melodrama, screwball comedy, noir and sci-fi, all worked through with a magical imagination that has produced a genre all of its own – it’s what the Cuban writer Guillermo Cabrera Infante termed Almodrama. Almodóvar’s cinema is rightly celebrated for its irreverence and wit, its humour and humanity, and for the plethora of beguiling characters that live on in our imaginations – from Chus Lampreave’s quirky grandmother in What Have I Done to Deserve This? to Carmen Maura’s warm and witty Pepa in Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown. This is a chance to relive his films anew – tales of transformation and renovation realised with a deftness of touch that Almodóvar has made all his own.

BFI Southbank is running a season dedicated to one of contemporary cinema’s most unique and talented filmmakers Pedro Almodóvar. The season will include an extensive events programme with on-stage appearances from Almodóvar, actor Rossy de Palma and fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier and more special guests.

Running alongside the Almodóvar film programme will be a series of 13 Spanish films which Almodóvar has personally selected to screen at BFI Southbank, all of which he holds great admiration for, and have been inspirational to him.
