Cine-Club: 'Jamón Jamón'

SPAIN arts & culture’s Cine-Club special screening presents Bigas Luna’s film ‘Jamón Jamón’ in the framework of the ‘TAPAS’ exhibition.

José Luis is an executive at his parents underwear factory where his girlfriend Sylvia works on the shop floor. When Sylvia falls pregnant, Jose Luis promises her that he will marry her, most likely against the wishes of his parents. Jose Luis’ mother is determined to break her son’s engagement to a girl from a lower-class family, and hires Raul, a potential underwear model and would-be bullfighter to seduce Sylvia.
