10,000 KM

DIRECTOR: CARLOS MARQUES-MARCET - SPAIN

Sergi and Alex, a young couple in Barcelona, are ready to take their passionate affair to the next level when 10,000 kilometers suddenly come between them. Alex is offered a year-long, all-expenses-paid artist’s residency in Los Angeles. Sergi, hesitant at first, encourages Alex to follow her dream, leaving them with only one way to bridge the divide: digital. With Skype acting as their savior, we witness the happy, painful, and revelatory process of a long-distance relationship sustained-and reinvented-through the ether. 10,000 KM mediates our experience, as it does theirs, through texts, video chats, and social media updates, probing the nature...

ALL THE WOMEN

DIRECTOR: MARIANO BARROSO - SPAIN

“Spanish machismo is picked apart with surgical precision in Barroso’s engrossing All the Women, Winner of the Goya (Spanish Academy Award) for Best Adapted Screenplay. Nacho (Eduard Fernández), a down and out middle-aged veterinarian, seeks advice from the most important women in his life—his lover, his ex-wife, his mother, his sister-in-law, and his psychologist—after his scheme to steal cattle from his father-in-law falls apart. He soon finds his character indicted by each one of them. A scaled-back, sharp-eyed, David Mamet-inspired deconstruction of the fragile psyches of Spanish and other males, anchored in Fernandez’s memorable central performance.”—The Hollywood Reporter.

ARTICO

DIRECTOR: GABRIEL VELÁZQUEZ - SPAIN

In Ärtico, winner of special mention honors at the Berlin Film Festival, Jota and Simón are two “quinquis” (nomads), aged 20, who wander the streets every day to make ends meet. But apart from their carefree thefts and wheelings and dealings, both want something they don’t have. Simon, already a father, wishes to find his freedom. Jota, whose girlfriend is a drug-addict, wants to build a family. What will it take for these two—and a drifting generation like them—to find a life? Gritty, bleak, and breathtaking, with intensely physical performances from its amateur cast, Ärtico contrasts the picturesque natural landscapes...

IN A FOREIGN LAND

DIRECTOR: ICÍAR BOLLAÍN - SPAIN

The current financial crisis in Spain has forced an estimated 700,000 young people to emigrate in the hope of a better life. Edinburgh is one of the most popular destinations, and the city is home to more than 20,000 Spanish people. In a Foreign Land follows three expatriates as they build new lives and search for new opportunities while suffering the indignation of having been cast aside by their own country. One of them is Gloria, 32, a teacher from Almería who works in Edinburgh as a shop assistant. Gloria decided to create the collective “Ni perdidos ni callados” (“Not...

LIVING IS EASY WITH EYES CLOSED

DIRECTOR: DAVID TRUEBA - SPAIN

Beatles fans will recognize the title from the lyrics in “Strawberry Fields Forever,” which John Lennon wrote while in southern Spain playing a minor character in Richard Lester’s anti-war movie How I Won the War. This event forms the backdrop of Trueba’s charming road movie about Antonio, a Spanish schoolteacher who is also an avid Beatles fan. When he learns that Lennon is filming in Almeria, he sets out to meet him. Along the way he makes friends with Belen, a 20-year-old pregnant girl on her way home to her family, and Juanjo, a teenage boy. Lennon’s words take on...

MAGICAL GIRL

DIRECTOR: CARLOS VERMUT - SPAIN

In this dark and offbeat social satire, Alicia, a 12-year-old dying girl, asks her father Luis to buy her a wildly expensive gift: the dress of anime character “Magical Girl Yukiko,” once worn by a Japanese pop star. Fate puts Luis in the path Bárbara, a deeply unstable married woman, and Damian, a retired teacher with a troubled past. Bárbara, Luis, and Damian are thrown into a world of blackmail that will change their lives forever. “A noirish social critique . . . the dangerous interaction between money and emotion, which feels authentically independent, the sideways slant of its...
