|Scene from Madrid, 1987
MIFF 2012’s Madrid, 1987, by David Trueba, will return to MDC’s Tower Theater on Saturday, Nov. 24 at 6:20 PM followed by a Q&A with producer Jessica Berman. In the film, Miguel (José Sacristan), a veteran newspaper columnist in his 70s with a world-weary tone and the libido of a much younger man, agrees to be interviewed by Ángela (María Valverde), a young journalism student barely in her 20s. Due to an incident involving a broken lock, the pair are trapped together all night in a tiny bathroom. The forced intimacy strips away social politeness as Miguel and Ángela learn more about each other and discover a wellspring of untapped emotions.
