After nearly 40 years in the director's chair, Pedro Almodóvar is one of the world's greatest living filmmakers – and this weekend Time Out is hosting an exclusive event with the Spanish director at the National Gallery for which we now have just 50 tickets left.
A true one-off, 66-year-old Almodóvar scandalised Spain in the 1980s with films including 'Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown' and 'Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!' before becoming an Oscar-winning cultural icon around the globe throughout the 1990s and 2000s with films including 'All About My Mother' and, more recently, 'Volver' and 'Broken Embraces'. It was Almodóvar who helped to introduce Penélope Cruz to the world: the actress has so far starred in no less than five of his films.
To celebrate Almodóvar's new film 'Julieta', which opens in cinemas later this month, Almodóvar will join us in conversation on Saturday August 13 to discuss his work in the beautiful and intimate setting of one of the galleries at the National Gallery. The conversation will go behind the scenes on his films and focus especially on how his work has been influenced by paintings and other artworks. The event is a sell-out, but we've just released 50 extra tickets this morning, so hurry if you don't want to miss a rare opportunity to hear from one of cinema's truly unique voices.
