L.A. OLA

 

In the last years a new generation of filmmakers from Spain has produced some of the most representative films in contemporary cinema, developing work that challenges the boundaries between documentary and narrative both in its form and content. The work of these filmmakers has been showcased and recognized in the most prestigious international film festivals such as Rotterdam, Locarno, San Sebastian or Berlin. These films are rarely being distributed through mainstream commercial channels and have only had extremely limited exhibition opportunities in the USA, if any. L.A. OLA, Spanish Contemporary Cinema Exhibition, aims to introduce this new generation of Spanish Filmmakers to Los Angeles audience.
