Film: Del corto al largo (y viceversa), Mala espina

April 13

12 pm (MST)

Available for 48 hours

Instituto Cervantes Vimeo Channel HERE

Belén Macías’ second feature film, Marsella, dramatizes a tug of war between two women, raising the question of who should have custody of a child—the struggling working-class biological mother unable to raise her “properly,” or the wealthy middle-class adoptive mother who can do so. Does having money give one a greater claim on motherhood?

2013; Spanish with English subtitles; 98 minutes; not rated.

Free community event

During April, Instituto Cervantes presents the work of four filmmakers in collaboration with Alcine, the film festival of Alcalá de Henares (Madrid, Spain). One of the oldest festivals in Spain, Alcine celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2020.

To mark the anniversary of the festival, Del corto al largo (y viceversa) presents a dialogue between two works (a short subject and a feature film) by each of the filmmakers selected from among its participants. In addition to showcasing the work of Alcine, this cycle shows how filmmakers may work in one format or another, according to their interests and the stories they have to tell.

Del corto al largo includes the work of directors Álex Montoya, Belén Macías, and Juanjo Giménez, as well as producer María del Puy Alvarado, four artists who have presented their work at Alcine—known for its short film program, although it also includes feature films—throughout their careers.
