Cineteca Nacional announced the rather surprising decision of returning to a former format for its most important film event, the Muestra International de Cine (International Showing of Cinema). Now we will have two Muestras in the year, one in spring and the other in autumn.
The Muestra 56, kicking off in Cineteca Nacional on April 10, offers a fine selection of 14 international feature films. Following the tradition, a classic Mexican movie has been restored and will function as opening film (Roberto Gavaldón's The Kneeling Goddess was the choice this time).
The highlights of this spring Muestra include Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel (premiering in Mexico), Sono Sion's Why Don't You Play In Hell, Miyazaki Hayao's The Wind Rises, A Touch of Sin, Jodorowsky's The Dance of Reality (premiering in Mexico City), and the first volume of Lars von Trier's Nymphomaniac (also making its Mexico City debut).
In the gallery below you can check out the full lineup of the Muestra 56!
