The fifth and final film in the Pragda Film Festival is Barefoot in the Kitchen [Con la Pata Quebrada].

“Co-produced by Pedro Almodóvar’s production company El Deseo and veteran Spanish producer Enrique Cerezo, this illuminating survey was put together by Diego Galán, a noted Spanish film critic and former director of San Sebastian Film Festival. Reflecting changes in the political sphere, Barefoot in the Kitchen chronicles how Spanish cinema has portrayed the evolution of women from the 1930s to the present day, using film fragments from 180 movies. Galán demonstrates how landmarks in the recent history of Spain can be directly indicated by shifts in social mores in cinema. By the time of All About My Mother (1999), women had turned the tables on men and on cinematic sexism, present since the early days of the talkies.” – Jaie Laplante, Miami International Film Festival.

José M. Naharro, from the Department of Spanish and Portuguese and Film Studies, will give a brief introduction before the film showing. Refreshments will be served.

The 2014 Festival is presented by Fatemeh Keshavarz, Director of the School of Languages, Literatures, and CulturesLaurie Frederik, Director of the Latin American Studies Center, and Juan Carlos Quintero-Herencia, Head of the Department of Spanish and Portuguese.
