Available for 48 hours

Pilar Miró’s El crimen de Cuenca is an unsparing depiction of real events that took place in 1913 in the Spanish province of Cuenca.  When a shepherd mysteriously disappears, his companions, believed to be responsible for his murder, confess to the crime under torture and are condemned to prison, serving 11 years of an 18-year sentence.  After they are released, the man they supposedly killed turns up alive. The film was initially banned in Spain and the director brought before the military courts; when it was allowed to be shown in 1981, it became the highest-grossing Spanish film in the country up to that time.

1979; Spanish with English subtitles; 92 minutes; Rated R (18+)

At the beginning of the Transition (la Transición—the Spanish transition to democracy following the death of dictator Francisco Franco in 1975), a small group of filmmakers took to the streets to record the opinions of politicians and citizens regarding the country that was about to be formed. Today, this documentary by Cecilia and José Juan Bartolomé is a milestone in the history of Spanish cinema, compiling testimonies that allow us to understand the plurality of a young society as it thinks about its past and considers how to build its future.

Pioneras: Mujeres de Vanguardia/Pioneers: Women of the Avant-Garde, Después de… Atado y bien atado

March 26

12 pm (MST)
Available for 48 hours

Instituto Cervantes Vimeo Channel HERE

The second part of the documentary Después de…, by Cecilia and José Juan Bartolomé, features politicians, professionals, and citizens from all walks of life as they express their opinions of the changes that have befallen Spain during the years of the country’s transition to democracy following the death of Francisco Franco. The outspokenness of some of these testimonies and the sense of tension that pervades the film caused its release to be held up until late 1983. Después de… places its directors in the vanguard of social documentarians who continue to play a critical role in Spanish cinema.
