Mientras Duermes (Sleep Tight)

  • Directed by Jaume Balagueró, 102 minutes.
  • In Spanish with English subtitles.
  • On May 12th at 7:30 pm.

Apartment concierge César is a miserable person who believes he was born without the ability to be happy. As a result, he decides his mission is to make life hell for everyone around him. A majority of the tenants are easy to agitate, but Clara (Marta Etura) proves to be harder than the most. So Cesar goes to creepy extremes to make this young woman mentally break down. Things get even more complicated in this twisted relationship when her boyfriend, Marcos (Alberto San Juan), shows up.

No Todo Es Vigilia (Not All Is Vigil)

  • Directed by Hermes Paralluelo, 98 minutes.
  • In Spanish with English subtitles.
  • On June 2nd at 7:30 pm.

Antonio and Felisa have been living together their whole life, in a little village of the province of Teruel. Now that their health is more fragile they are afraid of not being able to take care of each other. On the horizon the prospect of having to go into a retirement home appears as a threat. Not All Is Vigil portrays love at old age, nights of tossing-and-turning due to the fear of loneliness, and the fear of leaving one’s life in someone else’s hands while accepting a loss of independence.

15 Años y Un Día (15 Years and One Day)

  • Directed by Gracia Querejeta, 90 minutes.
  • In Spanish with English subtitles.
  • On June 30th at 7:30 pm.

Fourteen-year-old Jon is increasingly acting out. He gets expelled from school and then poisons a neighbor’s dog. His mother, a widow and a struggling actress, feels overwhelmed and sends him to the Alicante coast to live with his grandfather Max, a Bosnian War veteran and a strict disciplinarian. Jon and Max clash, but the boy starts to adapt to his new environment and make new friends. Suddenly a shocking act of violence turns Jon’s life upside down; it’s left to Max to investigate who’s responsible.
