10/11/2017.- The Cinema & Wine Cycle will hold a special gala in which the Golden Spike of Honor will be posthumously awarded to Pascual Herrera, who was president of the Cigales Designation of Origin, on October 25 at the Valladolid Laboratory of Arts (LAVA). Until the 27th, on the same stage, a series of events will be carried out, including the screening of films linked to the world of wine.
André – The Voice of Wine: Narrated by Ralph Fiennes, a US, German, and Russian co-production (2017), directed by Mark Tchelistcheff, tells of the efforts of André Tchelistcheff, the director’s uncle, a benchmark for winemakers around the world for relaunching the US wine industry after the Prohibition. A second documentary, Sour Grapes, by Jerry Rothwell and Reuben Atlas (United States, United Kingdom and France, 2016), investigates the story of a famous and ingenious wine forger, Rudy Kurniawan.
Fiction also finds its place in the Cinema & Wine Cycle with the screening of the French film Ce qui nous lie [Back to Burgundy]. Directed by Cédric Klapisch, this film is about the reunion of three brothers at the family vineyards.
This same cycle will exhibit the short films selected in the second edition Rueda con Rueda, a festival that awards prizes for a total amount of 10,000 euros for works filmed in wineries within the Rueda Denomination of Origin. Actresses Nadia de Santiago and Ingrid García-Jonsson, filmmaker Paco Plaza, director of Seminci Javier Angulo, and general director of DO Rueda, Santiago Mora, are members of the jury that will decide this year’s winners.
