La Guarida by far has the best and most diverse film calendar in Cuenca. Don’t miss out on these incredible masterpieces:
– Portrait of a Lady on Fire –. June 21st (Tuesday, 6:45 PM).
The movie dramatizes the constraints of the era, the imposition of a narrow and religion-based morality, the stern discipline that’s internalized as a result, the elision of women and their world from public life, and the firm expectations of family and society that Héloïse will endure in her unwanted marriage.
Yet it does more than merely depict them—it embodies them, in the characters’ poised stillness, which makes the airy surroundings feel as rigid as stone. A masterpiece.
– BPM [Beats Per Minute] –. June 22nd (Wednesday, 6:45 PM).
BPM is vital for the history it depicts, but it’s also important in the here and now, as a testament to public action — even messy, not-always-effective public action. A story that not just gets at how to combat institutional homophobia but institutional injustice. It shows how a loving community can come together and make their voices heard. Incredible acting, direction and writing. A simply spectacular film.
Don’t forget that reservations with dinner are required. Book now by calling 099 806 8071.
