A decade after its spectacular premiere, Phenomena cinema rescreens J.A. Bayona's spectacular debut film with the presence of the director.
When 'Jurassic World' is premiered in cinemas around the world next summer we will be able to state unequivocally that J.A. Bayona is the Barcelona film director with the greatest international projection. The man behind titles like 'The Impossible' and 'A Monster Calls' is the current favourite director of Steven Spielberg, has won over Hollywood and is about to release one of the blockbusters of 2018. But how did his career begin? Bayona started by making short films, video clips for bands like OBK and Camela, and, 10 years ago, made a name for himself with his first feature film, 'The Orphanage', a horror story in which a woman pursued by the ghosts of her past (Belén Rueda) buys an old orphanage to transform it into a home for children who need special care, and moves there with their family, only to discover soon that the house is haunted by a disturbing presence.
To celebrate the tenth anniversary of the film, Phenomena Experience is offering a special screening at which J.A. Bayona himself will take part in a talk with the public once the film is over. If you also want to take part in the experience you have an appointment for 4 January.
Tickets are available here.
