Mujeres al Borde de un Ataque de Nervios

Pedro Almodóvar, 1988, Spain, 88', ENG subs

Pedro Almodóvar’s films are notoriously difficult to write a synopsis for, with plot twists that will leave you spinning. So, simply expect high melodrama, irreverent humor, and a vibrant visual style like no other. With an ensemble cast including Antonio Banderas and Rossy de Palma, Mujeres al borde de un ataque de nervios is a must-see film from one of the most unique directors.

Wan Pipel

Pim de la Parra, 1976, Suriname/NL, 111', ENG subs

Wan Pipel tells the story of the Surinamese student Roy, going to his dying mother in Paramaribo, meeting again his Dutch girlfriend, and then finds out what is next. Caribbean director Pim de la Parra delivered a gem for the Surinamese and Dutch cinema history, and greatly supporting other filmmakers in the following decades.
