The festival’s goal is to present to North America the finest offbeat, independent, and artistically-inspired Spanish films from all genres: narrative, experimental, and animation.

7:45 pm: Screening of Me Too!

ME TOO! Yo, tambien | Alvaro Pastor & Antonio Naharro | Spain | 103 min. | 2009

Me Too! is the film of the year. A delightful, offbeat comedy-drama that tells an unusual love story, which challenges society’s deeply ingrained prejudices. Daniel (Pablo Pineda) and Nuria (Lola Dueñas- Volver, Broken Embraces, The Sea Inside ) work together and they’re friends. Daniel is in love with Nuria, but she’s reluctant to go any further. Touching, funny and sexy, this unconventional romantic comedy, directed by debutants Pastor and Naharro, talks openly about the desires and sexual needs of people with disabilities in a way not seen before on screen.
