We may not be travelling to Spain right now, but that doesn't mean we can't enjoy Spanish art and culture. A range of museums have virtual tours available, so you can explore the Prado Museum in Madrid, the Picasso Museum in Barcelona or the National Archeological Museum in Madrid, all from the comfort of your own home.
This image (via Agustín Almodóvar) documents two of cinemas greats - Pedro Almodovar and Tilda Swinton - on set in July 2020, filming THE HUMAN VOICE (La Voz Humana). The short film will have it's premiere at the 77th Venice International Film Festival in September, which will be going ahead with strict social distancing measures and mandatory mask wearing. 🎬🎟
The Alliance Française French Film Festival will be closing next week, but before it does, we recommend seeing THE TRANSLATORS, starring Spanish actor Eduardo Noriega (Tesis, Perfectos desconocidos, Una pistola en cada mano). When the first 10 pages of a top-secret manuscript appear online, the publisher suspects foul play from one of the 9 language experts hired to translate the book in isolation...and will go to any length to unmask the culprit. Book now!

Today is Colombian Día de la Independencia marking the July 20, 1810 uprising of the residents of Bogotá, which became a catalyst for independence from Spain. In Colombia, celebrations centre around the national flag and popular family activites include playing sports, listening to traditional folk music and eating food like arepas, empanadas and tamales. We look forward to sharing Colombian cinema with you again in the Cine Latino sidebar when the Spanish Film Festival returns in 2021. 🇨🇴💃
The Alliance Française French Film Festival is returning to Palace Cinemas nationally* today. French-Argentine actress Bérénice Bejo (La Quietud 2018, The Artist 2011) stars in A Friendly Tale, a delicious tale of tested loyalties, in which the close friendship of two long-time couples is put at risk when one of the two wives unexpectedly becomes a best-selling author, upsetting the intricate balance of this formerly close-knit quartet.

Today is Argentinian Independence day or Día de la Independencia as it’s called in Argentina! It harks back to July 9, 1816 - when the Congress of Tucuman in the northern territories declared independence from Spain. Celebrations are often an all-day affair with families gathering for a lunch of the customary dish locro, a stew made from white corn, pork, beans, and red chorizo. Pastelitos, a fried pastry, are also popular on this special day. ¡Festejamos!
Cannes Film Festival might not be going ahead this year, but the Official Selections were still announced at the start of June. Films from Spain that received the coveted stamp of approval include EL OLVIDO QUE SEREMOS starring Javier Cámara and JOHN AND THE HOLE by Pascual Sisto.
A GUN IN EACH HAND (Una pistola en cada mano) is a witty and scathing portrait of forty-something manhood and its shifting role in contemporary Barcelona. Directed by Cesc Gay and featuring a star-studded cast including Ricardo Darín, Javier Cámara and Luis Tosar, this battle-of-the-sexes comedy from the 2013 Festival is a must-see.
