In Detail

A famous Spanish actor, Julio Arenas, disappears during the filming of a movie. Although his body is never found, the police conclude that he has suffered an accident at the edge of a cliff. Many years later, the mystery is brought up once more by a TV program that tries to evoke the actor, offering as a scoop, images of the last scenes in which he participated, shot by his close friend, director Miguel Garay (Manolo Solo).

This is Erice’s first feature in 31 years - and only his fourth overall - arriving as something between a desert oasis and a mirage: a shimmery, nourishing culmination of ideas and ellipses in a career so elusive as to have taken on a mythic quality, to the point that his latest feels almost dreamed into being. Nominated for an amazing 11 Goya Awards – the Spanish film industry’s highest accolade.

We are also screening Erice’s classic ‘El Sur’.
