Spain for Export, April 4 6, 2013

The last few years has seen a great number of Spanish filmmakers pack their bags and move to foreign lands, mainly the United States, to produce their movies. Reasons vary: some studied in the US, others were invited by local producers to take on a project after the success of their previous films, while others were seduced by the ‘glamour’ of American independent cinema and underground experimentation. With all the political and financial turmoil of the times in Spain, this is a program that reflects this reality of Spanish youngsters looking for a brighter future in filmmaking away from home. Of special interest is is the many ways in which the American culture introduces itself in their work.
