Dear friends, 

Here are some mix-and-match ideas to enjoy from the comfort of your own home. Just dive into our recommendations!


Now showing: Spanish Cinema Now+ 2020

Now, more than ever, we would like to celebrate and share the best of Spanish cinema with you. Spanish Cinema Now+ 2020 will be presented as free online screenings. Registration is limited, so make sure to get your tickets! 

When working on the film selection a few months ago, Spanish filmmaker Pablo could not anticipate what the world would be like now. But it turns out to be perfectly appropriate for these times: the two films we are presenting dig into personal relationships between four walls. 


Journey to a Mother’s Room

 On Saturday, April 18, from 4 pm to 10 pm
(UTC -04:00). Free, RSVP required.

“A round-the-world trip of a mother and her daughter without leaving their house. A giant small movie. After watching it, you will call your mother… wanna bet?”

 —Pablo Berger


Killing God

 On Saturday, April 25, from 4 pm to 10 pm 
(UTC -04:00). Free, RSVP required.

“A dark, very dark comedy. Fun, hilarious. A personal and irreverent paella, with ‘chunks’ from Buñuel, Valle-Inclán, and Álex De la Iglesia.”

 —Pablo Berger

Google Arts & Culture: The MNAC

José Luis Brea, one of the most unique voices of contemporary critical thinking in Spain, talked about the RAM_Museum (or how the museum, like the Random-access memory, could be read and changed in any order). Have you ever imagined a museum without walls? Now you can visit the world’s major museums from the comfort of your home thanks to Google Arts & Culture.

Google Arts & Culture features content from over 2,000 leading museums and archives.

Free online films: Club de Reyes

Acción Cultural Española (AC/E) has launched #ACEFilmoteca, a new initiative offering free online films during the stay-home order. The documentary Club de Reyes is our pick for you:


Club de Reyes

Directed by Andrea Barrionuevo, 61 minutes. Watch the film.

For over forty years (1966-2014) a Spanish college in Madrid, el San Juan Evangelista, was a space for music, art and culture; a space of resistance. Club de Reyes tells the story of El Johnny through its promoter, Alejandro Reyes, and the various artists that performed there over the years.


If you enjoyed the Club de Reyes soundtrack…
El Johnny has closed its doors for now, but we still can enjoy the music of the artists who performed there. We have created a playlist with a selection of some of the Spanish artists who played at this legendary club over the years.
