Henry King at the Filmoteca de Andalucía

Hello, everyone!

Welcome back. These days I want to suggest a few tips, so as to make it easier to get into the routine again.

It would be a good idea to go to the Filmoteca de Andalucía. This month a season of Henry King will be screened, including titles such as Twelve O'Clock High (Almas en la hoguera) and The Gunfighter (El pistolero). The films are in English with subtitles in Spanish. If you want more information, click here.
