Amanece, que no es poco

November 9, 2010 - 6:11 PM

In June we screened for the first time, in the Academy of Motion Picture of Spain, my first long-format documentary, "20 Aņos Amaneciendo, que no es poco." It's about the local cult classic "Amanece, que no es poco" (1989, dir. Jose Luis Cuerda), its unusual extended life thanks to dedicated fans, and the subsequent tourist route created by the government of Castilla La Mancha, where the film was originally shot.

As soon as I get a chance I'll post a 10 minute excerpt on the site. The doc was supervised and stars Jose Luis Cuerda himself as well as Jose Maria Barreda, the President of Castilla La Mancha, and several of the actors from the film, most of whom are household names here.
