Day School: A Woman’s World in the Films of Pedro Almodóvar



Saturday 21st January, 10.30 – 4.30 pm

Mechanics Institute Library, Bradford


This day school will look back across Almodóvar’s career and explore how and why the director’s fascination with ‘strong’ female characters developed. The study will include a full screening of The Flower of My Secret (La flor de mi secreto, 1995).

Described by critics as a key Almodóvar film, The Flower of My Secret marks a significant shift towards the director’s more ‘mature’ style that has so entranced international audiences. It features one of his collection of leading female stars. Marisa Paredes plays a would-be literary novelist who actually makes her living writing romantic fiction under a pseudonym.

The day promises colour, glamour and outrageous designs, high emotion, surrealism and absurdity – and tragedy and comedy. What more could you want?
