News from Berlin - The Spanish Instituto Cervantes, in cooperation with  Babylon Mitte cinema has organized the screening of the film "San Agustín. Marea baja en el mar de plástico ", which will take place this afternoon at 8:15 p.m.

Continuing with the expansion of Spanish culture through Germany, and right before the Spanish Film Festival -which will begin on November 1st -, the Instituto Cervantes offers the screening of this film. Afterwards is going to be a conference with the participation of the film directors:  G. Gruber, A. Hick and M.Schmitt.

The film, which will be played in Spanish with German subtitles, is about the day-to-day fruit and vegetable plantations in the Andalusian village of San Agustin. The current economic crisis coupled with a strange plague which is ravaging plantations, will be the common thread between several stories about the lonely farmer José María, the Crespo family and the owner of the local bar, Paco.

The region of Andalusia - especially Almeria- is well-known for its fruits and vegetables plantations. Nowadays,  there are thousands of greenhouses in this area, so this place is well-known as  "El Mar de Plástico" (the plastic sea).

This film, which was released in 2012, is a Spanish-German production, so the Instituto Cervantes has harnessed not only the importance of rural affairs in Spain, but also the connection between the two countries in this film to organize the event.

The screening, which will take about 1 hour and a quarter, will begin at 8:15 p.m at Kino Babylon Mitte (Rosa-Luxemburg-Str. 30). Tickets can be purchased directly at the cinema or booked by phone (030-2425969).
