Tilda Swinton and Pedro Almodóvar will need little introducing here, so we’ll cut straight the chase: the lovely Catford Mews has announced Chicas To The Front: A Celebration Of The Almodóvar Girl which screens from now until 16 June 2021.

The short season of the director’s works includes short film THE HUMAN VOICE with a recorded Q&A with Tilda Swinton and the director hosted by Mark Kermode (2020), an absolute RADIANT CIRCUS favourite ALL ABOUT MY MOTHER (1999)*, and VOLVER (2006). The first two films are booking now. Tickets for VOLVER will be along soon… Here are the dates & details:
