Enjoy language and culture in Spanish at the Instituto Cervantes. Enrolment is now open for our winter courses! Cielo negro , de Manuel Mur Oti, nos presenta a una protagonista con una vida arruinada por la desgracia. Mur Oti es un director ambicioso en sus temas, si bien siempre se mueve dentro de las normas del melodrama. Las dos triunfan utilizando, sin embargo, tonos muy diferentes. Thriller, crime, melodrama and comedy of manners are the genres selected for this cinema series, in which we can appreciate the contribution of directors setting the foundations of a new cinema in Spain in the fifties.
This series includes the works of two European directors who settled in Spain: Hungarian Ladislao Vajda, who worked extensively all over Europe and Italian director Marco Ferreri.
The Directors and films were chosen to showcase the innovation in the narratives and themes in the Spanish cinema of that time. The fifties was a period for change in European cinema, for co-productions and for different audiences to approach the seventh art that became a cultural shelter after WW2. Spanish cinema, although controlled by the state, takes inspiration from the European and the American models and lives its own renovation.
Mur is an ambitious director with his themes -although they are always within the melodrama genre- and very expressive in its cinematography. They both succeed using very different tones: El Pisito paints a society through subversive elements and La vida por delante is an intelligent comedy of manners that suggests a lot more than is expected from this light genre.
Darker cinema for darker times; do not miss a series of productions which managed to communicate the complicated social climate and constraints of their time.

Text by: Miriam Abuin prendub cervantes. La fuerza con que la historia que se nos cuenta nos atrapa se debe, en buena medida, a las magistrales actuaciones de Laia Marull y Luis Tosar, su pareja protagonista.

Es pintor, escultor y, con obras en papel, trabaja sobre diversos formatos. Entrada gratuita. Julian Aragoneses is a Spanish artist, who currently lives in Dublin. Painter, sculptor, he works on various formats.
He believes that the evolution of the role of art reveals contradictions regarding what a work of art should offer us today. Society spends little time and passion in the contemplation and understanding of works.
It is indifferent towards a deeper comprehension of new artistic proposals, scientific research or any other facet of human knowledge. The result is an unsatisfactory meeting between the creators and the public and a conformist consumption of sensationalist technology and art. On the other hand, what is the learned, the collector, the art lover seeking? An investment, a confirmation of theories, snobbery, decoration, transcendental experiences, meaning…?
What does a society and individuals expect of art when they search for nothing themselves but expect everything to be given to them without effort? The works selected for this exhibit intend to confront the spectator with these questions: false expectations, questioning the media, ignorance, inert technologies, contradictions, ironies….
