ANOTHER WAY FESTIVAL



Another Way film Festival, Madrid's sustainable progress film festival, will be held in Matadero next October to raise public awareness of the challenges and environmental solutions we face through more sustainable filmmaking.

As an aperitif prior to the festival, in Sala Equiis which is now one of the coolest places in the city, there will be a screening of three wonderful documentaries from today until Friday at 7pm.

The films are as follows:
- Today: Koyaanisqatsi (1982) Godfrey Reggio produced by Francis Ford Coppola. Voiceless images that show the contrast of modern life with nature.
- Thursday: Human (2015) by Yann Arthus-Bertrand. Portrait of the human being, of his fears, love, violence.
- Friday: Life in a Day (2011) by Kevin Macdonald, produced by Ridley Scott.
Time capsule to show future generations what it means to be alive on July 24, 2010.

Movies not to miss on cinema!

I enjoy very much going to the cinema, but I must admit that with all the facilities we have at home now with Movistar, HBO and Netflix , I am lazy to go out for the big screen.
This Christmas I've reconciled myself with the cinema, and I've taken the opportunity to see all kinds of films that I recommend in this post.

Film - Where Do We Go Now? - ¿Y Ahora Dónde Vamos?

Lebanese film by Nadine Labaki -Where do we go now?

 I had the chance to be invited by the Ambassador of Lebanon in Madrid of the Lebanese film originally "Et maintenant on va oú? in Spanish ¿y ahora dónde vamos? The film is directed and interpreted by Nadine Labaki, who not only is extremely pretty (she reminds very much Monica Belucci) but very talented. This film is her second work; she already collected great success in her first film "Caramel".

Film - Salmon Fishing in the Yemen - Cinema Renoir Cuatro Caminos


I had read the book "Salmon Fishing in the Yemen" by Paul Torday in 2008 and enjoyed it very much for its funny british spirit. I was surprised to see it on screen so decided to go to the cinema and it was worth it. This time my cinema choice was Renoir Cuatro Caminos (Raimundo Fernández Villaverde 10) with all films in original language.

Film - The Descendants - Cine Cité Manoteras


Not a bad Clooney but not extraordinary. Handsome, yes!

Went to the cinema on Friday night. In Madrid you can easily find cinemas showing english language films with Spanish dubbing: Renoir, Yelmo, Verdi,… I like Manoteras Cine Cité, they have great seats (called VIP in rows 10 to 12) and easy parking. Surrounding sound a little bit excessive...

We went to watch “the Descendents”, very last film by George Clooney. Not bad but a bit disappointing; a mix of comedy and important drama in Hawaii surroundings. His performance is not very touchy; well, the whole film does not touch you even if the underlying story is very dramatic (wife in coma and difficult relationship with teenage daughters). You always see a screen in front of you, do not get really involved in the story. Yet, remarkable the performance by in-coma wife’s father the actor Robert Forster.
