Víctor falls hard for Elena, but she doesn’t reciprocate his feelings. She does, however, have feelings for David, a policeman who arrives to break up an argument between her and Víctor. That encounter however takes an unexpected turn that leads these characters down a dark, twisty path.
Join Dr. Terri Carney as we examine the work of Spain's prolific filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar. We will view as many as twelve of his twenty-two films at Kan-Kan Cinema.
Almodovar's films are works of art: they burst with color and stun with their precise compositions. His plotlines are labyrinths replete with coincidences and hilarious secondary characters. We will explore many of the cinematic techniques and themes that have come to define his style, which include miscommunications, liminal spaces, mise en scene, marginal characters, urban/rural divide, metafiction, nationalisms, gender, and sexual liberation.
