Internationally-lauded filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar has written and directed provocative, melodramatic and black-humoured films for more than 30 years. Now, for the first time in Australia, the Gallery of Modern Art is screening a complete retrospective of his works from Jul 21 to Sep 2.
Featuring all 18 films, the collection will screen those from his flamboyant and violent beginnings, like Pepi, Luci, Bom, to award-winning films What Have I Done to Deserve This? and Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown. As well as more recent suspenseful tales Broken Embraces, starring Penélope Cruz, and The Skin I Live In with Antonio Banderas.
The films will be shown on Friday nights, Saturday nights and Sunday afternoons during the six week retrospective, and five-film passes are available for $24-36.
