Azcona by David Trueba

  • On Thursday, October 17 at 7 pm. Free.
  • At Instituto Cervantes, 211 E 49th Street, New York, NY 10017.

Rafael Azcona would have liked to the invisible man, however his name is engraved in the history of Spanish cinema. As described by those who knew him, Azcona was a magnificent writer, with a sharp social irony. He began writing stories in the satirical maganize La Codorniz, where he already demonstrated his enormous talent to criticize, always in a humorous way, the current state of values. The documentary Imprescindibles, directed by journalist Fernando Olmeda, pays tribute to this brilliant screenwriter and shows his most human version through testimonies from people who knew and worked with him. Spanish novelist, film director and screenwriter David Trueba will guide us through the works of the great Azcona.

Rebeca Jiménez

  • At Rockwood Music Hall, 196 Allen Street, New York, NY 10002.

Spanish songwriter and singer Rebeca Jiménez is an important voice in the Spanish music scene. After living in Mexico for some time, her music bridges from Spanish rock to Mexican traditional music. Jiménez will offer an exciting concert with her #RockRanchero –a new way of understanding the traditional Mexican rancheras.

Accompanied by Toni Brunet on electric guitar, she will perform songs from her previous albums in which she collaborated with artists such as Neil Young, John Fogerty, Miguel Ríos, Andrés Calamaro, Coque Malla, Pereza among many others.
