Film Discussion Lunch - Spanish Language Cinema

Do you like talking movies? Do you like eating lunch? Why not combine the two as our gathering of film buffs leads to free flowing conversations on movies of any and every type. For our Film Discussion brunches, we will be starting out with a designated topic decided at the previous lunch, whether a filmmaker, era, style or genre.

“Within the last 20 years, one of the most influential and incendiary World Cinemas must surely be Latin and Spanish Cinema. They evoke images of passion, colour, and a visual veracity all of their own… the cinemas are interlinked by a shared language, history and culture, while collaborations such as between Chilean director Alejandro Amenabár and Spanish stars Eduardo Noriega and Penelope Cruz have cemented this bond.” - Den of Geek

    Guillermo del Toro is my favorite director. Anybody watching The Strain series currently on FX TV?
