Sean Connery and Wong Kar-Wai, protagonists in June in Albacete

TOyota

June will see the end of the visit of the Albacete Film Library to the WONG KAR-WAI Universe, as well as the end of the memory of SEAN CONNERY, in both cases with two new titles. In addition, the half century of the fundamental work of Sam Peckinpah will be commemorated PERROS DE PAJA, and the Berlanga Year will be paused until September with a possibly minor work, VIVAN LOS NOVIOS !.

There will be local flavor with the short documentary LA FIGURA OCULTA about the bonillero artist Crescencio Garrido, and in the month of pride -thanks to the collaboration with the Equality Services of the Diputación de Albacete- there will be three titles among which SUMMER OF 85 stands out, the acclaimed latest film by François Ozon, as well as the most recent and essential cinema of this season with ONDINA and NUEVO ORDEN.

In the suggestion box, the recording of the mythical AMAZING GRACE by Aretha Franklyn will be remembered, to conclude the month with the traditional CUBAN CINEMA Show -in collaboration with the Association of Friends of Cuba in Albacete- and a poker of titles by the incomparable FERNANDO FERNÁN -GÓMEZ, who would have reached its centenary in 2021.

It has been a rugged season, with changes in capacity, preventive closings and cuts in sessions … but the summer break has also come for her. After the months of heatwave from the Albacete Film Library they hope to return with a greater normality, offering -as always- the best cinema.
