Come and discover the hidden gems of Mediterranean Cinema and join us for engaging discussions with other language and culture enthusiasts! Every month, we will showcase a film in one of the languages taught at our school.
Before the screening, our teachers will provide an introduction to the film (in English), offering insights into its context, noteworthy elements, and characteristics of the work and the director, as your guide to fully savoring the cinematic experience.
After watching the film, we will have small conversation activities to chat more about what we have seen and share discoveries and points of view, and, if possible, use the language you are learning with fellow students, teachers, and native speakers.
This month it’s Spain’s turn, so we’ll watch La Comunidad (2000) by Álex de la Iglesia:
In Madrid, real estate agent Julia discovers 300 million pesetas in the apartment of a dead man. The simplest thing would be to leave with the money, but it turns out quite challenging: the neighbours had been waiting for the man to die, so they could seize the money. And they’re not willing to share. This black comedy combines claustrophobic suspense with human tragedy, and a lot of twisted humour.
