West Beirut  - According to some observers the best dramatic film about the Lebanese Civil War 1975-1990.

Three teenagers, Tarek (Rami Doueiri), Omar (Mohamed Chamas), and May (Rola Al Amin) roam the streets of the city, searching for their next adventure. Their parents... Tarek (Rami Doueiri), Omar (Mohamed Chamas), and May (Rola Al-Amin), roam the streets of their city, searching for their next adventure. Their parents worry that they're becoming too wild, but the kids don't care. But this is Beirut, Lebanon in 1975, a city split by the first stirrings of civil war. School has been shut down and the city they love has been torn in two - there is now a Christian-controlled East Beirut, and West Beirut, run by the new Muslim militias and where the three friends live. For the kids, the political schism means greater freedom, and the kids find pleasure in biking, talking, and falling in love. But they cannot ignore the war forever.

Recent Spanish Cinema XVI

Recent Spanish Cinema XVI
October 14 - 17 Exclusively at the Egyptian Theatre

Presented in collaboration with the Instituto de la Cinematografia y de las Artes Audiovisuales (ICAA) of the Spanish Ministry of Culture and EGEDA - Filmotech. With the support of Embassy of Spain in Washington, Spain USA Foundation, Consulate General of Spain in Los Angeles, Tourist Office of Spain in Los Angeles, Promocion Madrid (Madrid City Council) and E.L.M.A. (European Languages and Movies in America). Sponsored by Lladro, Codorniu, Bodegas Terras Gauda y Vina Zaco.

This year’s selection of recent Spanish cinema focuses on a new generation of filmmakers, while highlighting performances by both seasoned veterans and talented newcomers in roles that demonstrate their strength and versatility.
Join us opening night for Spain’s official selection for the 2011 Foreign-Language Film Oscar, TAMBIEN LA LLUVIA (EVEN THE RAIN) starring Gael Garcia Bernal and Luis Tosar. A kick off cocktail party will follow the screening in the Egyptian Theatre Courtyard!
Strong performances highlight the nine films in the showcase. Luis Tosar, one of Spain’s most vibrant actors, is in three of the this year's selections! He shines as the delectable Bad Mother in Daniel Monzon’s box office hit CELDA 211. In Alvaro Pastor’s and Antonio Naharro’s YO, TAMBIEN, actress Lola Duenas (alongside newcomer Pablo Pineda), garnered the Goya for Best Actress and both won accolades at the 2009 San Sebastian International Film Festival. Alberto Rodriguez’s AFTER showcases the talents of Blanca Romero, who received a nomination for Best New Actress at the 2010 Goyas. Emilio Aragon’s directorial debut, PAJAROS DE PAPEL, pairs Imanol Arias and Lluís Homar as a comedy duo in a vaudeville troupe in post-civil war Spain. Oskar Santos directs EL MAL AJENO, starring Eduardo Noriega in a "snappishly contempo morality tale [that] is satisfyingly breathless and twisty," raves Jonathan Holland of Variety. Daniel Sanchez Arevalo directs a stellar ensemble cast in GORDOS, a comedy that received seven nominations at the 2010 Goyas, with one win for Raul Arevalo in the Best Supporting Actor category. Director Laura Mana’s second feature LA VIDA EMPIEZA HOY stars the ever-delightful Rosa Maria Sarda as an unconventional teacher of a senior citizen sex education class. In LOPE, Andrucha Waddington brings famed Spanish playwright Lope de Vega's passionate life to the screen. This highly entertaining late 16th-century Madrid period film just opened in Spain.

All films in Spanish with English subtitles.

We are thrilled to welcome actors Luis Tosar, Eduardo Noriega, Marta Etura and Antonio de la Torre and director Emilio Aragon to the Egyptian Theatre.

Series compiled by Gwen Deglise with the assistance of Soledad Gonzalez and Elvira Cano. Program notes by Noelia Saenz.
