I CAN QUIT WHENEVER I WANT (2019)
LO DEJO CUANDO QUIERA
2019, Filmax, 98 min, Spain, Dir: Carlos Therón

Pedro, Arturo and Eligio spent their entire college life studying and focusing on their postgraduate careers. Fast-forward 10 years, and things haven’t gone as planned. After Pedro is fired from his job at the local university, the three friends decide to try a new pill he’s been developing in his lab. They soon realize the potential profits of selling the new drug and are quickly swept into the exciting and dangerous world of drug dealing. Our heroes are getting a second shot at having fun in their youth, but at what cost? David Verdaguer (10,000 KM, LOS DIAS QUE VENDRAN) stars as Pedro in this hilarious romp around Madrid’s club scene.

THE REALM
EL REINO
2018, Latido, 132 min, Spain/France, Dir: Rodrigo Sorogoyen

On the heels of his Academy Award-nominated short film “Madre,” filmmaker Rodrigo Sorogoyen delivers an indictment of moral degradation in Spain’s halls of power. When the illicit dealings of a regional politician (Antonio de la Torre) fall under public scrutiny, the repercussions are far-reaching. His bid for higher office derailed, the antihero sets off down a collision course with his own party to protect himself at all costs. Winner of seven Goya Awards, including best director, best actor, and best original screenplay, EL REINO affords a gripping portrait of ambition and survival in a land beset by governmental intrigue.
