Film: Nuevas Cinefilias, Estaciones singulares: Violeta no coge el ascensor

November 12, 2021

12 pm (available for 48 hours)
On the Instituto Cervantes Vimeo Channel Here

In Mamen Díaz’ indie comedy Violeta no coge el ascensor, twenty-something Violeta is spending a stifling summer in Madrid as an intern in a publishing house. Dodging the heat between affairs that only multiply her self-doubts, she makes new friends and makes decisions—some good and some bad—as she comes to learn that “failure is more an art than a drama.”

2019; Spanish with English subtitles; 87 minutes; not rated.

In November, Instituto Cervantes collaborates with the Seville European Film Festival on the film cycle Nuevas cinefilias: Estaciones singulares. The four recent Spanish films screened in this cycle could not have been made in the past because of their language and themes—they innovate, take risks, and play with contemporary structure and narratives, and in doing so, they update the legacy of cinema and open a path for filmgoers to understand the constant changes that are taking place in society.

Since 2018, this film cycle has been organized by both collaborating institutions as a showcase for new Spanish cinema.
