October 6 will mark the establishment of the Day of Spanish Cinema, recognizing the important role of filmmakers in the country’s cultural and social life, as well as the value of this artistic heritage, now over a century old.
In the first celebration of this day, Instituto Cervantes, in coordination with the Agencia Española de Cooperación Internacional para el Desarrollo (AECID), presents Fernando Fernán-Gómez’ 1986 film El viaje a ninguna parte. Adapted from the director’s acclaimed novel of the same name, the film is the story of a family of traveling comedians who perform in rural communities during the 1940s and 1950s. With the arrival of cinema, their world, and their era, is coming to an end.
