Instituto Cervantes de Manila, the Embassy of Spain, Intramuros Administration and the NCCA present the exhibition Spanish Cinema in 20 Posters. Curated by Instituto Cervantes and designed by Filipina artist Nikkorlai Tapan, the exhibition will be open to the public at the NCCA Gallery, Intramuros, until October 30, 2015.

Spanish Cinema has contributed to international cinema culture prominent figures like Luis García Berlanga, Luis Buñuel, Carlos Saura, Víctor Erice, Pedro Almodóvar, Alejandro Amenábar, or Isabel Coixet. This exhibit will invite you to explore the history of Spanish cinema through the posters of some of its most emblematic films. Yet it also means to go beyond it. After all, posters promote films but also echo the aesthetic style of the period.

As a complement to the exhibition, the theater of the NCCA has screened the film cycle Iconos del cine español, a film series of six iconic films that made history in Spanish cinema — namely Bienvenido Míster Marshall (1953), Muerte de un ciclista (1955), Viridiana (1961), Cría cuervos (1973), La colmena (1982) and Blancanieves (2012).

The exhibit “Spanish Cinema in 20 Posters” is part of Película, the Spanish Film Festival. Presented by Instituto Cervantes, the Embassy of Spain-AECID, the Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP), Intramuros Administration, and Ayala Malls Cinemas, Película is made possible by Maersk, Rustan’s, NCCA, Emperador Distillers, Ayala Malls Cinemas & Greenbelt, Vibal Foundation, Qatar Airways, Buzz Productions, and the Spanish Chamber of Commerce, in collaboration with Ayala Museum, the Embassy of Argentina, the Embassy of Mexico, the Embassy of the Czech Republic, the Embassy of Colombia, Bodegas Vivanco and Barcino.

The entrance to the exhibit is free.

The National Commission for Culture and the Arts Gallery is located at 633 General Luna St., Intramuros, Manila.
