For its 25th edition, ¡Viva! returns for its annual celebration of Spanish and Latin American culture at HOME in Manchester. With a specially selected programme of the most exciting film and theatre from across the Spanish-speaking world, we’re excited to have a slice of the action in the form of Spanish thriller Ana de Día.
This directorial debut feature from Jaurrieta – teacher, scriptwriter, producer, editor and actor – is a thrilling journey into the personal liberation of a woman unexpectedly expelled from her comfortable but unfulfilling life when a mysterious doppelgänger takes her place. Including echoes of Hitchcock and Lynch, an uncanny atmosphere pervades the film as Ana abandons her fiancé and career, and embraces an alternative version of herself, complete with a job in a seedy cabaret. Exploring her sexuality from this new position in society, Ana seems both vulnerable and empowered, an eerie ambiguity that holds the audience in suspense until the end. With its vibrant use of sound and colour, and masterful framing and editing, plus a whole host of quirky characters, this is great fun to watch.
This screening of Ana de Día is part of the ¡Viva! Spanish & Latin American Festival 2019 tour, presented by HOME, Manchester, with the support of the BFI, awarding funds from The National Lottery.
