Cultura y Costumbres: Información de carácter cultural (mensaje del Con. San Francisco)

Acabo de recibir un e-mail del consulado. Aqui lo pongo en un hilo y luego clasificare las pelis por eventos.

Durante los días 24 de abril de 2008 al 8 de mayo de 2008, tendrá lugar la 51ª edición del San Francisco International Film Festival. En este festival se presentaran las películas españolas que a continuación se relacionan.

Barcelona (A Map), directed by Ventura Pons.
This moody meditation on identity and change unfolds as an elderly dying man and his wife, seeking privacy, tell their tenants one by one to leave, dredging up secrets, memories and inexorable truths ahead of a final transformation. This is an intimate, character-driven drama, told in five two-person conversations, about an elderly couple speaking with their tenants, family members, and each other as they prepare to sell their large flat. Various secrets, about incest, cross dressing, homosexuality, issues of paternity and maternity, are revealed.

This film screens on April 26 at 6:30PM, April 28 at 3:45PM, and May 1 at 9:45PM at the Sundance Kabuki Cinemas.

Mataharis, directed by Icíar Bollaín.
From one of Spain’s most probing filmmakers comes an engrossing drama of corporate espionage, centered on three female private investigators, which unfolds as a keen exploration of relationships and ethics in the lives of women who work. Women in disguise often pay the psychological price of managing their honest relationships and siding with those of whom they are tasked to spy on.

This film screens on April 26 at 4:00PM, April 28 at 7:15PM, and April 30 at 9:00PM at the Sundance Kabuki Cinemas and May 2 at 1:15PM at the Clay Theatre.

La Zona, directed by Rodrigo Pla.
This powerful drama studies the social stratification of present-day Mexico in its story of a gated community whose members will do anything to protect themselves after a burglary occurs. Also dramatized is the fate of one of the burglars who is given shelter by a boy who lives in La Zona. Rodrigo’s Plá’s taut debut tackles some disturbing consequences of a widening gap between haves and have-nots in contemporary Mexican society.

This film screens on May 3 at 9:30PM at the Clay Theatre, May 5 at 2:00PM and May 7 at 9:30PM at the Sundance Kabuki Theatre.

Timecrimes, directed by Nacho Vigalondo.
This suspenseful, imaginative and wickedly comic feature, about a mild-mannered bird-watcher who spies a half-clad woman in his binoculars with bizarre and fateful consequences, offers viewers a reminder that time travel to erase one’s mistakes is never a wise idea. Hector, the mild mannered, middle-aged man gets caught up in a twist-filled plot and encounters a scissors-wielding man with a bandaged face, among other outstanding characters, on his curious journey.

This film screens on May 3 at 11:00PM at the Sundance Kabuki Cinemas and May 7 at 9:45PM at the Clay Theatre.

Solitary Fragments, directed by Jaime Rosales.
A single mother moves to Madrid, developing a circle of acquaintances whose intertwined daily lives are minutely observed in this disarmingly naturalistic tapestry, suddenly and shockingly torn apart by a cataclysmic event. The survivors are left to mend the broken shreds of the fabric of life. Solitary Fragments has had a significant impact on a traumatized Spain, winning three 2008 Goya Awards, including Best Film and Best Director.

This film screens on April 26 at 5:45PM at the Pacific Film Archive, April 29 at 6:00PM, May 1 at 9:00PM, and May 3 at 6:30PM at the Sundance Kabuki Cinemas.

The Festival will also honor several special guests for their contribution to film, including Village Voice senior film critic and author on landmark film studies Jim Hoberman, this year’s recipient of the Mel Novikoff Award, bestowed upon an individual or institution whose work has enhanced the filmgoing public’s knowledge and appreciation of world cinema. Hoberman will be interviewed onstage and will present a screening of In the City of Sylvia by Luis Guerin, a nimble, masterful film whose Strasbourg-set love story brings the wonder of moviegoing back to life—and is the latest of the thousands of worthy foreign films that have benefited from this influential writer’s tireless championing of unique cinematic voices and visions.

This film screens on April 27 at 6:00PM, April 29 at 4:00PM, and May 2 at 9:00PM at the Sundance Kabuki Theatres.
