We are proud to support the screening of The Year of Discovery at Open City Docs Festival. The film proposes a counter-narrative to the official history of 1992, the year Spain hosted the Olympics in Barcelona.
Celebrate the #ArtofNonFiction at Open City Documentary Festival‘s 11th edition, which runs across London cinemas and venues 8-14 September. We’re delighted to partner with the festival to present a screening of The Year of Discovery / El año del descubrimiento (dir. Luis López Carrasco; 2020)
Shot entirely on Hi-8 videotape in a bar in Cartagena, The Year of Discovery is a monumental work which excavates the legacy of 1992, proposing a counter-narrative to the official history of the year that Spain hosted the Olympics in Barcelona, the universal exposition Expo’92 in Sevilla, and celebrated the quincentenary of Columbus’s arrival in the America.
The Year of Discovery was hailed as one of the most important film works of 2020 and finally gets its first London cinema screening at the festival.
Showing: 10 Sep | 20.00 | @ICAlondon
