Panorama / Cinephilias

Every summer night, in some Spanish towns, locals and tourists come together in parks to experience an outdoors 35mm screening. People work restlessly to make this possible in long days that can very well be their last. 

Leire Apellaniz’s El último verano carries the material weight of being a document, and the lyrical tone of an epic fiction that finds in the figure of a resigned loser the pre-announced drama of the end of an era. The film depicts without melancholy what they knew it would come. The very simple story is the one of Miguel Ángel, a technocratic, endangered beast who programs film screenings in small Spanish towns. Yet what actually sheds light on the film is the forensic beauty with which Apellaniz shows us the museographic and verbal inventory of a world that is not running anymore: xenon lamps, Maltese crosses, reels, splicers. A world of things that are mentioned or seen for the last time. In that farewell, The Last Summer is the first filmed memory of that which is gone. JJB
