THREE STEPS ABOVE HEAVEN
TRES METROS SOBRE EL CIELO
2010, 118 min, Spain, Dir: Fernando Gonzalez Molina

Based on Federico Moccia's cult novel and recalling the winningly improbable romances of ‘80s Brat Pack films, Barcelona teen Hache (Mario Casas), a brawny biker with a short fuse, and wealthy if sometimes rebellious Babi (Maria Valverde) meet cute at a traffic light and again shortly thereafter at a party. The couple's instant attraction is insatiable and genuine, but their romance is complicated by them being from very economically disparate sides of the tracks, and Hache's violent streak that keeps him constantly at odds with the law. With Alvaro Cervantes as Hache's goofy, fun-loving sidekick Pollo. Nominated for Best Screenplay at the Goya Awards 2011. In Spanish with English subtitles.


Los Angeles Premiere!

FOREVER YOUNG
HEROES
2010, 105 min, Spain, Dir: Pau Freixas

In Pau Freixas' sun-dappled gem of '80s nostalgia, pre-teen Xavi (Ferran Rull) spends his summer vacation with his usual group of friends - Cristo (Mireia Vilapuig), who has a crush on Xavi, nerdy yet hilarious Colo (Marc Balaguer), Roth (Joan Sorribes), who has Down syndrome, and the beautiful Helena (Nerea Camacho), whom Xavi flirts with in hopes of getting the mysterious "butterflies" his older brother has told him about. The summer progresses and the motley crew of middle schoolers are harrassed by an older group of bullies, while Xavi struggles with his relationship with his step-father, but when a tragedy occurs suddenly, the young teens must face their first real trial of growing up. Winner of the Audience Award at the 2010 Malaga Film Festival. In Spanish with English subtitles.
