Pedro AlmodovarStreaming Video - 2006
Filmmaker Pedro Almodovar's ability to shock and provoke is legendary. In this program, the director traces his colorful career from obscure independent filmmaker, to his 1988 Oscar nomination for Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, and beyond. Using scenes from this and other major films-Folle, Folleme Tim; Pepi, Luci y Bom y Otras Chicas del Monton; Laberinto de Pasiones; Entre Tinieblas; Matador; Tacones Lejanos; and La Flor de Mi Secreto-Almodovar explores his unique creative perspective, particularly his frequent use of characters living on the fringes of traditional Spanish society. Due to the adult nature of Almodovar's films, this program is recommended for mature Spanish language students.
