The highlight this year is Sergi López, one of Spain’s most acclaimed actors whose work in Spanish and Catalan spans both stage and screen. Well-known for his role as Vidal in Pan’s Labyrinth (2006), López trained at the Lecoq School in Paris and his fluency in French has given his career a resolutely European dimension with a significant number of important film roles in the French language, most famously Dominic Moll’s Harry, He’s Here to Help (2000) and more recently in Dominic Moll’s The Monk (2011 alongside Vincent Cassel. He has even crafted English-speaking characters for film such as with the untrustworthy hotel porter in Stephen Frears’ Dirty Pretty Things (2002)
This short film season brings together four of his most acclaimed films, showcasing his remarkable breadth as an actor across four European languages. A special career interview on Saturday 17 May will allow Sergi López to discuss working across film and theatre, crafting some of contemporary cinema’s most resonant villains.
