(2015, cross-cultural comedy; Language: Spanish, with English subtitles; running time: 99 minutes)
Dear friends, following our screening of the outrageously funny film “Spanish Affair” (Ocho Apellidos Vascos – “Eight Basque Surnames”) in January this year, we now have the pleasure of presenting you the sequel, Ocho Apellidos Catalanes (“Eight Catalan Surnames”), dubbed by some reviewers as “Spanish Affair 2”. In this film, the hilarious team travel from Basque country to Catalonia, finding themselves in a chaotic fun over many issues including love, cross-cultural romance, politics, national independence, and cultural heritage.
Euro-Mernet Film Club aims to raise awareness on social issues and promote the cultural heritage of diverse communities by screening films from around the world, with particular focus on Mediterranean, Middle East, and the entire Europe.
The films we screen are usually social comedies, satirical pieces, documentaries and similar independent productions. Sometimes our film screenings are followed by a talk by a director/producer/actor/actress themselves and/or a discussion between the guests on the film.
We have several film screening venues across Brighton and Hove and at present we show on average 4 films per month, almost one film per week! :-) All our film screenings are FREE. You are always welcome to join our film club and enjoy sharing giggles with us.
