Cine Con Europa - extended!

Instituto Cervantes extends cycle of Spanish-European films!

Due to the successful month-long run of Instituto Cervantes' Cine con Europa, a unique cycle of film gems co-produced between Spain and member-countries of the European Union, the Spanish cultural center will extend the film screenings until April 24, 2010.

A cacophony of drama and the hilarious sit alongside an unabashed popular blockbuster – the celebration of Spanish and European films will be delivered yet again at Instituto Cervantes' Salon de Actos every Saturday for the whole month of April at 6 p.m.

This event is also part of Spain 's presidency in the EU.

The cycle continues on April 10 with "Amor Idiota" (Idiot Love), an absorbing but dramatically uneven yarn of sexual obsession that extracts plenty of smart comedy from its darkness. This movie is strictly for adults (R-18).

Showing on April 17 is "Lo que sé de Lola" (What I Know About Lola), a meticulously constructed take on loneliness in which a maladjusted Frenchman (Leon) observes the life of a vivacious Spanish woman (Lola). This movie is strictly for adults (R-18).

On April 24 Cine Con Europa wraps up with "Una Casa de Locos" (The Spanish Apartment). The film follows Xavier, an economics student in his late twenties, who signs on to a European exchange program in order to gain working knowledge of the Spanish language.

Cine con Europa is organized by Instituto Cervantes de Manila in collaboration with the Spanish Embassy in the Philippines , and Spanish Agency International Cooperation for Development (AECID).

Admission to all the screenings is FREE on a FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVED basis.
