Valladolid, May 29 (EFE) .- The SECIME celebrates the career of the actor Antonio Resines, who will collect this Sunday the Roel de Honor, the highest distinction that the Medina del Campo festival (Valladolid) gives to interpreters and directors who have been and continue being a benchmark in the seventh art.
With more than 120 films and some thirty television series, Resines is one of the most popular actors on the national scene, after participating in films such as “Ópera prima” and “La Niña de tus ojos”, by Fernando Trueba; “Secondary roads”, by Emilio Martínez Lázaro or “The good star”, by Ricardo Franco, which earned him the Goya for Best Leading Actor.
On that same day of SECIME, another of the selected titles within the cycle “Golden Harvest” will be screened: “New Order”, by Michel Franco, a Mexican film that reflects on inequality and the risks of revolt that it entails.
This work was recognized with the León de Plata and Leoncino de Oro in Venice and as best Latin American Film in the 2020 José María Forqué Awards. It will be preceded on the screen by the short film from the National Contest “Tótem Loba”, by Verónica Echegui.
The first screening scheduled for Sunday will be a special session of shorts from the National Contest, in which “Monologue” by Pilar García Elegido will be seen; “Fires, beyond the theater”, by Álex García; “Deep Soria”, by Pedro Estepa Menéndez; “The Monkey”, by Xosé Manuel Zapata and Lorenzo Degl’Innocenti; “Wayback”, by Carlos Salgado; “No voice”, by Jiajie Yu Yan, and “Chaval”, by Jaime Olías de Lima.
In addition, in the Coliseo de Medina del Campo Multicines the fourth and last exclusive session of shorts of the Official Section will be shown, as reported by the organization of the contest in a press release.
Also on Sunday, Antonio Santos, professor of the Chair of Cinematography at the University of Valladolid, will give the “Master Class” of this edition, at the old Simón Ruiz Hospital, with the title “Port Lligat, 1959. Dalí-Teshigahara, Mediterranean ikebana “.
The master class will unravel aspects of the encounter between the Japanese avant-garde filmmaker Hiroshi Teshigahara and the painter Salvador Dalí, recorded by the director himself and that, years later, would acquire international relevance with The Sand Woman.
Among the parallel activities of the 34th SECIME will be included the three shootings that take place within the 16th EIMA Medina Plató de Cine Marathon, and the concert of the Municipal School Band, directed by Alberto Mateo, which will recall well-known soundtracks of the history of cinema.
