Discover ‘REEL INSPIRACIÓN’ as the Spanish Film Festival (SFF), playing exclusively at Cinema Paradiso, Northbridge, reveals the thrilling program for its 20thbirthday edition.
OPENING NIGHT FIESTA – Thursday 27th April We kick off the Opening Night of the Spanish Film Festival with a glass of Freixenet cava and the premiere screening of Paco Leon’s kinky comedy KIKI, LOVE TO LOVE, the playful, provocative and award-winning comedy that became a massive sleeper hit at the Spanish box office in 2016. The party will continue after the screening with a Spanish fiesta at Connections Night Club featuring Torres wines, Stella beer, tasty Spanish food from Pinchos and entertainment from DJ Harvey Rae. Across five separate stories, KIKI: LOVE TO LOVE’s charismatic characters all share one thing in common: an unusual impulse that they are unable to suppress. Determined to shed the self- imposed inhibitions prompted by their desires, these madrileños embark on a hilarious sense of adventures in which no pleasure can – nor will – be denied. Freely adapted from Josh Lawson’s The Little Death, the Aussie source proves to be a perfect match for the handsome, adorable and slightly daffy persona of a Goya-nominated writer/director and star, Leon. But his stylish injection of Latino spirit and an Almodovar-esque blending of comedy and pathos makes the film irresistibly unique – in no small part to his talented ensemble of Spain’s brightest young actors including Candela Peña and Natalia de Molina. Winner: Best Comedy Film – Feroz Awards 2017 Nominated: Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Original Song, Best New Actress, Best Supporting Actress – Goya Awards 2017
