Pain and Glory, Pedro Almodóvar's passionate and deeply personal gem that won Antonio Banderas the Best Actor award in Cannes will open this year’s Summer International Film Festival (Summer IFF) on 13 August.
The 15-day cinematic extravaganza concludes on 27 August with Ken Loach’s Sorry We Missed You, a riveting portrait of the everyday struggles of the British working class, following his 2016 Palme d’Or winner I, Daniel Blake.
To accompany Almodóvar’s latest masterpiece is an eight-film tribute programme, offering an encompassing overview of the maverick Spanish filmmaker’s highly diverse style, ranging from transgressive sexual comedies to subtly complex melodramas.
