For those interested in European cinema, the Instituto Cervantes Dublin (the Spanish cultural and language centre in Ireland) offers free online screenings in original version with English subtitles.
The Spanish Academy of Cinematographic Arts and Sciences annually grants a special award, the Goya de Honor (Goya of Honour), to artists whose career is of undeniable value and relevance. In the 2022 edition, the award reaches the hands of José Sacristán, one of the most prestigious, respected and beloved actors in Spanish cinema.
The Instituto Cervantes joins to this recognition with an online film series which pays tribute to this multifaceted performer. With an enormous career in Spanish cinema, José Sacristán has participated in more than one hundred films of very different spectrum and intention.
Selected by Sacristán, the cycle presents four titles that provide interesting attention to the moment in which they were made. In addition, the participation of our protagonist reveals his involvement in cinema as a tool for social dialogue alongside four generations of filmmakers. His distinctive voice and his ability to embody all kinds of characters make of him one of the best protagonists in the history of acting in Spain. His presence has been constant in cinema, theatre —also musical theatre— and television.
All the titles will be available on the Vimeo channel of the Instituto Cervantes for 48 hours, starting at 7:00 p.m. [GMT] on the indicated dates.
