A traveling festival of new Spanish cinema, FNSC is back for its 9th year. Here are a couple highlights:
Sexo Fácil, Películas Tristes (Easy Sex, Sad Movies)
Buenos Aires screenwriter Pablo (Ernesto Alterio) is hired to write a new romantic comedy. As he begins his story, he visualizes his characters living in Madrid. Pablo creates a meet-cute between Marina (Marta Etura) and Víctor (Quim Gutiérrez), a cute couple in Madrid who are soon totally in love. Yet as Pablo gets more and more into the script, he finds it difficult to separate his movie characters from what is happening in his own real life – specifically, his own love life.
Mi Gran Noche (My Big Night)
This riotous pop masterpiece from Spain’s Álex de la Iglesia chronicles the accidents, romances, conspiracies and backstage shenanigans that beset the taping of an unusually fraught New Year’s Eve variety show.
Silver Spring, MD: June 16 - 19. Full lineup and details here.
