Pain and Glory

Director: Pedro Almodavar - 113mins - Spain - 16 - 2019 - Subtitled

Veteran director Salvador Mallo currently suffers many health issues, which he blames for the creative rut he finds himself in. As he tries to recover both creatively and physically, he remembers his mother and reflects on his work, family and past loves.

“Every element of the film is beautifully judged. … But it is Banderas who makes the film fly.” – Donald Clarke, The Irish Times, Cannes Film Festival 2019

Winter / Spring 2020 Programme


Our inaugural programme will run from January to May 2020. The Winter/Spring selection includes award-winning films like the magical and disturbing Colombian combat epic, Monos, Pedro Almodóvar's sublime Pain and Glory and what's been described as one of the defining British films of the decade Bait. We also have the excellent Irish-produced documentary Shooting the Mafia and the critically acclaimed drug epic Birds of Passage as well as the wonderful Good Posture. Of course, with short films always at the forefront of our programming, we will be showcasing a fantastic selection of films from both Ireland and abroad.
