On the other hand, the Sebastiane Awards have chosen to link their 20th anniversary to filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar’s 70th birthday on September 25. GEHITU will therefore bring the exhibition ‘All about Pedro… Almodóvar turns 70’ from Cuba.
The initiative started with a competition to which 40 designers submitted their proposals as part of the CartelON project and in collaboration with the Spanish Embassy’s Cultural Offices-AECID, the production company El Deseo and the Cuban Cinematèque. The result is this show including the 20 finalist works and the original posters for Almodóvar’s films.
The exhibition can be seen for the first time in Europe thanks to the collaboration between GEHITU (with the help of Mugen Gainetik eta Elankidetza-Basque agency development cooperation) and Donostia Kultura, which will provide the Activities Room in the Municipal Library, Calle San Jerónimo, for the occasion.
The show will run from September 21-29 and will enjoy the participation of the creator of the original idea, Yumey Besu Payo.
