Online Event

Throughout March, the online film series "Espacio Femenino. Pioneras" from the Instituto Cervantes will be honouring to the ground-breaking women filmmakers in Spain. Also, this series constitutes a special programme for the 30th anniversary of the Instituto Cervantes in 2021, where "Espacio Femenino" has been a regular annual programme since 2010.

In this series we will screening 6 different films by 5 female directors: Ana Mariscal, Margarita Alexandre, Pilar Miró, Josefina Molina and Cecilia Bartolomé.

Synopsis: The staging of the play Five Hours with Mario (Cinco horas con Mario) by Miguel Delibes in the 80s, starring Lola Herrera, gave the director Josefina Molina the opportunity to carry out an experiment with unpublished documentary dyes that reflected on sentimental education of the Spanish postwar generation. The parallels and differences between the actress and the character she plays run parallel to her meeting with her ex-husband, with whom she has a long cathartic conversation that reveals her injuries and traumas.

The screening will be available to watch for 48 hours, starting on 19th March at 19.00, on the Vimeo channel of the Instituto Cervantes.

You can find also introductions in video by film specialists, and a detailed fact sheet of the film, in our website
