The foundation ‘Asamblea de Ciudadanos y Ciudadanas del Mediterráneo’ (FACM) is creating a space for Mediterranean cinema in collaboration with the Aragó Cinema co-operative.
‘Cinema Mediterrani als Aragó’ is an initiative designed to bring films you wouldn’t normally find in commercial cinemas to the silver screen in Valencia.
The first film is Chronicles of my village by Karim Traïdia, a Dutch-Algerian director who was nominated for an Oscar for his film The Polish Bride (1998). Chronicles was shown on Wednesday 31st May 2017 and another film will be shown the last Wednesday of every month.
