Opening with Javier Fesser’s critically acclaimed Goya Award-winning box office smash hit Champions (Campeones), the festival will close with a digital restoration of the firecracker comedy Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown (Mujeres al borde de un ataque de nervios), directed by leading Spanish auteur, Pedro Almodóvar, to celebrate the film’s 30th Anniversary. The Realm (El reino) will screen as Special Presentation in which acting heavyweight Antonio De la Torre is reunited with director Rodrigo Sorogoyen (May God Save Us, SFF17), for an award-winning political thriller. The Spotlight on Female Directors will also feature 11 films directed by women. From established directors such as Icíar Bollaín and Gracia Querejeta to fresh new voices including Lila Avilés, the spotlight presents a programme of Spain and Latin America’s most exciting filmmakers.
