Back by popular demand!

This short film screens with The Human Voice (30 min) and includes a pre-recorded Q&A with director Pedro Almodóvar (30 min).

Coral Gables Art Cinema presents Pedro Almodóvar’s new short film, Strange Way of Life, paired with the director’s first English-language short, The Human Voice.

A man rides a horse across the desert that separates him from Bitter Creek. He comes to visit Sheriff Jake. Twenty-five years earlier, both the sheriff and Silva, the rancher who rides out to meet him, worked together as hired gunmen. Silva visits him with the excuse of reuniting with his friend from his youth, and they do indeed celebrate their meeting, but the next morning Sheriff Jake tells him that the reason for his trip is not to go down the memory lane of their old friendship.

Seating is general admission.

Tickets to these screenings are $12.75 and under. Cinema members pay only $8.

“It’s a kick to see Almodóvar’s gay gaze applied to a Western, though at only 31 minutes, the film leaves us wanting quite a lot more.” —Richard Lawson, Vanity Fair

“It’s a provocative movie that brings out the best in both of its leads, and feels like the filmmaker is having fun playing around with these genre tropes.” —David Fear, Rolling Stone
