UK Premiere/ La Estrella roja

In Lichtmann’s own words, this is a “a spy movie, a fiction about a documentary, a story built with elements from History with a capital H.” In a remarkably short space of time and at a snappy pace, this film weaves a web of historical events around a fascinating mythical heroine, Laila Salama, a Jewish Argentinian spy here credited with a role in the 1960 kidnapping of Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann in Buenos Aires. Approaching the genre of personal-investigative documentary with light-hearted parody and warm homage, and boldly declaring a love for cinema as epic adventure, this is a witty delight to watch.

Short film screening alongside this feature film: Los Conspiradores

In every attempt at subversion, there are two moments: the one just before, full of doubt and fear, and the one just after, when all that remains is to run and find a safe place, maybe in memory.  During the clandestine political struggle to overthrow the Franco regime, the most important thing was to know how to wait. Every other quality was secondary. Keeping a cool head not only helped you wait for the perfect moment, but also to react in the right way when things went wrong.

This is the second short film from author and filmmaker Luis E. Parés, an expert on Spanish emigration, exile and archive cinema. He currently works as a programmer at the Seville Film Festival and is conducting research for his first feature film, on Spanish cinema in exile and flamenco.

Screening before the feature film La Estrella roja.
