¡Viva! 21 Weekender Part 3, 2015

'Requisitos para ser una persona normal' (Requirements to Be a Normal Person)

‘Requisitos para ser una persona normal’ (Requirements to Be a Normal Person)

The third and final part of the annual ¡Viva! Festival at HOME in Manchester starts today and runs until Monday 9th November. It features five new Spanish features plus a range of events with talks, intros and Q&As.

The annual Spanish and Latin American Film Festival has been split in three this year because of the move from Cornerhouse to HOME. The weekend begins on Thursday 5 November with Felices 140, a new Spanish film about the eternal question “Can money buy you happiness?” This film shows again on Monday 9th November.

Requisitos para ser una persona normal (Requirements to Be a Normal Person, Spain 2015) plays on Friday and Saturday. Also on Friday and Saturday is Pos Eso (Possessed, Spain 2014) an animation by SAM who is described as a veteran of Aardman Animations. This gets a 1 hour intro from Steve Henderson, Editor of Skwigly Magazine, on Saturday afternoon. Saturday also sees a talk and a Q&A associated with the Basque film Lasa eta Zabala (Spain 2014). 

It’s a busy period and so we can only attend one day and we aim to report on Sunday’s screenings of Lasa eta Zabala and Tots volem el millor per a ella (We All Want What’s Best For Her) (Spain 2013).

There are Catalan and Castillian language cafés on Sunday and Monday and a Spanish language film study day on Tuesday. Download the ¡Viva! Weekender brochure for more details.

There are few Spanish and Latin American films getting a UK release these days so this is an essential festival. We support ¡Viva! whenever possible.
