UN POQUITO DE GAZPACHO, ANYONE???
Hello little nebulas of Berlin, we are back again with Cosmic Kino #5, giving you a star studded line up of steamy Spanish melodrama and fierce felines leaving a blazing trail through the streets of 1980ties Madrid. If gazpacho served cold with a side of crunched Sanax makes you giddy with exitement or you ever felt perplexed and utterly in love with Candelas perfectly shaped espresso maker earrings, well then this is your night. We invite you to take part in an evening at Loophole filled with fast paced comedy and continous exploration of the female psyche.
First up we screen the stylish short film with hints of drama “Out” by Gsus Lopez, starring the fabulous Jeff Kristian as Mary. Mary is a divorced middle aged woman and effortless drama queen who lives with her teenager daughter Rachel in a small town in England. Mary is immersed in the small town life and cares imensely about society and what people think of her. As a single mother she juggles the roles of father and mother. Her life will takes a drastic turn when her twenty something son returns to the village with one purpose: to come out as gay.
“Women on the verge of a nervous breakdown” is Pedro Almodovar’s thrilling tale of women, and the men who pursue them. Finding them, losing them, needing them and rejecting them. Hilarious and melodramatic, with hints of black comedy, Almodovar continues to explore the female in society and proves that the male view quoted by local taxi driver “A lady’s no dangerous if you know how to handle her” is tremendously wrong. A woman can handle it alone, and ALWAYS with grand novelty earrings.
