Premiere of 9 bares, on 19 february at the Faculty of Education

9 bares

Next 19 February, at 9 p.m., in the Faculty of Education Assembly Hall, the University of Alicante will be holding the premiere of Ángel Puado’s second long film 9 bares. Puado also directed El perro naranja, which also premiered at the UA.

23 actors from the region of Alicante star in this hyperlink comedy that was shot in some of the landmark bars in Alicante, such as Clan Cabaret, El Soda, Villavieja 6, Chicago, La llum, El frontera (located in San Juan beach), Chillout (at Urbanova residential area) and two restaurants: El Portal and la Ambrosía. Puado plays with time and characters, plot twists and interwoven storylines taking place at each of these bars and restaurants.

Technical crew members are the director himself (who also works at the University of Alicante) and four students from How to make a short film, a workshop taught by Puado at the Languages and Culture Service. Other members of the crew are Fernando Alvarez Plana (sound management), Jj Domenech, Carlos Coloma and Adrian Martinez Ortuño (camera-men), and Pilar Salgado (makeup). For some of the workshop students this was their first experience in a short film production. Others simply witnessed the shooting or participated as stand-ins.

Other UA workers and friends collaborated in the film as well: guitar teacher Santiago Iglesias composed some songs for the soundtrack, and local San Vicente music band “Versos Rotos” (who happen to be Puado’s former students from the short film workshop) gave up the rights for one of their songs to be played during the film’s credits.
