SPANISH CINEMA NOW en el Lincoln Center. Hasta Diciembre 23.

The past three years saw the commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the Spanish Civil War, during which many new studies and reports offered revelations and refinements to our knowledge of the conflict. Reflecting that, a number of films in this year’s program are set during the Civil War or immediately thereafter, and even if they are not concerned directly with conflict, the Civil War very much informs the atmosphere, the characters, and the way they act. Alex de la Iglesia’s The Last Circus, for example, begins with a powerful Civil War scene, then moves to another era while detailing the lingering influence of that first scene. With no longer a need to rehash the issues or declare a stand, filmmakers feel a freedom to explore lesser-known, more offbeat aspects of the conflict.
