New DVD Releases

El Bueno la Bomba y el Malo
Directors: Carles Prats, Manel Mayol

Almería was the great natural film set of the 1960s and 1970s. From "Lawrence of Arabia" to Sergio Leone's westerns, the dunes, the ramblas and the spectacular light of Almeria attracted hundreds of cinematographic productions and, with them, the great stars of the moment. Paradoxically, that great display left a very slight industrial footprint. But the memory of the cinema survived as a mythical account of the neighbors of localities like Tabernas or Carboneras. And the professionals who made their films before the airport existed or the modern hotels and infrastructures were in place.

Documentary directed by Carles Prats and Manel Mayol, responsible for "Call Him Jess" and "And I'm just here to say that"

Contra el Tiempo
Director: José Manuel Serrano Cueto

The young actor Antonio Mora ("Box 507", "Also the rain" ...) knows a group of veteran actors, little known by the general public, but who nevertheless had their era of glory in the 1960s and 1970s, especially during the "boom" of the genre productions and co-productions that were filmed in Spain.

"Against Time" interviews and honors at the same time, among others, Ricardo Palacios, Aldo Sambrell, Lone Fleming, Antonio Mayans or Charly Bravo, actors that we saw in westerns, horror films or police titles that formed a great industry of the entertainment in Spain, and that today is the object of cult film fans and a part of a new generation. Directed by José Manuel Serrano Cueto "Contra el tiempo" obtained a nomination for the best documentary feature at the last Goya awards ceremony of the past 2013.
