April is here and that means the return of ¡Viva! Spanish and Latin American Festival, back at HOME for its 23rd year with a host of exciting theatre shows, UK cinema premieres and a brand new art exhibition.
Viva theatre highlights include Sol Pico’s One Hit Wonders, rock theatrics with Republica, the Hitchcock inspired Birdie and two scratch performances including Smoke and Archimedes’ Principal. However if it’s film you’re after, be sure to check out the UK premieres of political thriller Pasaje De Vida and drama María and also the hard hitting La Puerta Abierta – each come complete with a post-screening Director Q&A. Viva takes over weekends in April too with our Viva Fiestas and even invades our gallery space with La Movida which arrives on Friday April 14.
Viva aside, other April highlights include a Q&A with A Quiet Passion director Terrence Davies, the Director’s cut of Park Chan-Wook’s The Handmaiden and Raoul Peck’s powerful new documentary I Am Not Your Negro accompanied by a post-screening discussion.
Meanwhile, Miloš Forman’s One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest returns as part of our classics season, kids-film staple The Goonies appears as part of our Bring The Family programme and House of Ghetto: Black Pride takes over our HOME Projects gallery space. What are you waiting for?
