Cine en el MACA

The Film Club of the University of Alicante will be holding two cinema cycles within the MACA Cinema Evenings initiative: one will be dedicated to director Alexander Payne, and the other will be devoted to the most recent cinema from Romania, featuring films belonging to the so-called “Romanian New Wave”. The screenings will take place at the MACA at 7.30 p.m. All films will be shown in the original version with Spanish subtitles and will be preceded by a presentation carried out by a UA senior lecturer or a film critic. Entrance is free, limited to seating capacity for students not applying for hours recognition.  

October will be dedicated to reviewing the career of filmmaker and scriptwriter Alexander Payne. Four of his films shot between 2002 and 2013 will be screened, including About Schmidt and the celebrated Nebraska. In these works, Payne shows us a world of his own where some characters experience a turning point in their lives that makes them begin to know themselves and understand their emotional relationships.


Tuesday 6 October: About Schmidt (2002)

Tuesday 13 October: Sideways (2004)

Tuesday 27 October: Nebraska (2013)
