SPAIN arts & culture’s first screening of 2014 presents Pedro Almodóvar’s film ‘Volver’ in the framework of the ‘TAPAS’ exhibition.
Three generations of women survive easterly wind, fire, madness, superstition and even death in a remote area of Spain. Through goodness, lies and an unlimited vitality this film provokes hilarious situations and others full of deep and genuine emotion. The living and the dead live together without problems. It is a movie about the culture of death in Almodóvar’s native region, La Mancha. Penélope Cruz, Carmen Maura, Lola Dueñas and Yohana Cobo work in this film together with Chus Lampreave and Blanca Portillo.
