DOLOR Y GLORIA

The film Dolor y Gloria by the famous Spanish director Pedro Almodovar captured the jury and audience at the Cannes Film Festival and is now coming to Hall 1 on November 23 as part of the Cinemania Festival program.

The work focuses on the topics of love, death, inspiration and the void that is left by the inability to create. The film also seeks to answer the question of whether without creativity people can find meaning in life.
