The guest country this year at MUCES is Norway. Seventeen films from the nation will be screened in Segovia, ranging from classics to more recent titles “that exhibit a strong ambition to reach out to both local audiences and international ones, by means of very different offerings that demonstrate a search for new forms of expressing human relationships and a love for film language”, as pointed out by the festival’s director, Eliseo de Pablos.

In the official section, viewers will be able to enjoy immensely interesting movies such as The Truth [+leggi anche:

As the icing on the cake of this cinematic feast, MUCES 2019 will remember the incomparable figure of the great Paul Naschy, an actor, screenwriter and director, and one of the cornerstones of the so-called Spanish “fantaterror” genre. In order to pay tribute to his extensive filmography, the Segovia-based event has selected four titles that will be screened over the course of the festivities: the cult film The Werewolf Versus the Vampire Woman (1971), The Traveller (1979), The Night of the Werewolf (1981) and the documentary The Man Who Saw Frankenstein Cry (2010) by Ángel Agudo, which looks back on his incredible life (and oeuvre).
