Contemporary Film Autumn 2020


Contemporary Film Autumn 2020

From 03 October to 04 December 2020

La Casa Encendida
Ronda de Valencia, 2

Our contemporary film programme is back at La Casa Encendida, but wherever possible we'll be using the courtyard instead of the screening room. All titles will also be broadcast simultaneously on our Filmin channel for those who can't visit the centre.

The last contemporary film cycle of the year features eight major titles which in spite of their worldwide release—and in certain cases following a brief tour of the festivals—have still not be been screened in Madrid or on the internet.

The programme showcases last year's best art house movies premiered at the Belfort and Toronto festivals, as well as the main titles from the last edition of the Rotterdam Festival. United by a transgressive spirit, these debut and second films are directed by a new generation of film-makers yet to be discovered.

You'll find Gothic horror from American film producer Graham Swon; the new voice from the Berlin school, Ceylan-Alejandro Ataman Checa; the unsettling psychological thriller from the Canadian rookie film-maker Heather Young; the exquisite contemplative anti-xenophobic poem from the new promise of Indian cinema, Arun Karthick; and the sublime romantic ode to nature by the Danish director Illum Jacobi.
