Deployment of political content
José Luis Cienfuegos, director of the SEFF, already warned days ago of the militant and political content of this edition.

Alberto San Juan and Valentín Álvarez come with El Rey , an adaptation of the play that tells the last hours of Juan Carlos I de Borbón; a cocktail that includes Franco and Willy Toledo. María Cañas, author of last year’s poster, presents La cosa yours, journey towards the most hidden and surreal face of the Sanfermines.And in the official section we have works like Donbass , a film by Sergei Loznitsa on the conflict in Ukraine, “a parade of vignettes of patriotism, hysteria, violence and bureaucracy.”
