"Fe de etarras", a Netflix original film, to premiere in cinemas on the 7th December
Directed by Borja Cobeaga and starring Javier Cámara, Julián López, Miren Ibarguren and Gorka Otxoa

Netflix, the leading Internet entertainment content provider, has announced that its second original Spanish film, “Fe de etarras”, is set to premiere on the 7th December in at least 20 cinemas in Spain with a high-profile presence in Madrid, Barcelona and the Basque Country.

Directed by Borja Cobeaga (“Negociador”, “No controles”) and written by Diego San José (co-writer of the recent hits “Ocho apellidos vascos” and “Ocho apellidos catalanes”), “Fe de etarras” stars Javier Cámara (“Narcos”, “Truman”, “Vivir es fácil con los ojos cerrados”), Julián López (“El tiempo de los monstruos”, “Perdiendo el norte”, “Pagafantas”), Miren Ibarguren (“Anclados”, “Aída”, “La que se avecina”) and Gorka Otxoa (“Allí abajo”, “Los miércoles no existen”, “Pagafantas”). The second original Spanish Netflix film is produced by MEDIAPRO (“Mondays in the sun”, “Midnight in Paris”, “The secret life of words”, “A perfect day”) and is also set to premiere in at least 20 selected cinemas thanks to the deal signed with the producer and distributor A Contracorriente.

Netflix is pleased to announce that viewers will get a chance to enjoy the film both in selected cinemas from the 7th December as well as on the Netflix platform from the 12th October

The principle objective of Netflix when it comes to programming original content is giving control to the consumer and this is another step in that direction.

The tandem Borja Cobeaga and Diego San José demonstrate their cutting-edge humour once again in a film which earnt a 10-minute-long standing ovation at the screening at this year’s San Sebastian Film Festival. According to Cobeaga, “to see that enormous cinema full of people laughing at the same time was one of the sweetest moments of my professional career. An unbelievable experience”.

“Fe de etarras” takes place in baking-hot summer of 2010 in a small Spanish provincial capital. An unlikely and dysfunctional commando made up of a veteran ETA fighter looking to prove he’s not past his best (Javier Cámara), a couple whose commitment to each other depends on the success of the mission (Miren Ibarguren and Gorka Otxoa) and a guy from the heart of Spain who thinks that joining the cell will make him feel like Chuck Norris (Julián López) are all holed up in a flat waiting for orders, which never seem to arrive, to jump into action. Meanwhile, the Spanish national team are striding towards their first ever World Cup win in South Africa with the whole town celebrating their passage.

Raúl Arévalo one of the stars of "Mi obra maestra", an Argentine film co-produced by MEDIAPRO
The Spanish actor, co-star of "La isla mínima" and the winner of a Goya award for Best Debut Director, completes a cast led by Guillermo Francella and Luis Brandoni

MEDIAPRO is a stake-holder in the production of “Mi obra maestra”, an Argentine comedy with Raúl Arévalo (“La isla mínima”, “El negociador”, “Cien años de perdón”) as one of the lead actors. The Spanish perfomer completes a cast headed by two veterans of Argentine film-making: Guillermo Francella and Luis Brandoni. Raúl Arévalo –who also won a Goya for Best Debut Director for “Tarde para la ira” in 2017–, plays Alex, a young man set on receiving painting classes from Renzo (Luis Brandoni), an irascible, rather wild artist, who’s in clear decline. The established painter hates all social contact and lives almost like a tramp, kept by his only rather innocent pupil.

“Mi obra maestra” is Argentine Gastón Duprat’s latest film, director of famous comedies such as “El ciudadano ilustre”. With the veteran Argentine film-maker Mariano Cohn heading up production, the feature-length film is set in and around Buenos Aires, the spectacular region of Jujui and the Brazilian Museum of Contemporary Art.

“Mi obra maestra” is a Televisión Abierta and Arco Libre (Argentina) co-production with MEDIAPRO (Spain), which tells the story of the relationship between two Friends: the irascible painter Renzo (Luis Brandoni) and Arturo (Guillermo Francella), a well-liked art-gallery owner, who is sophisticated and with good intentions who is trying to resuscitate the artist’s career. Both characters are united by an old friendship, although they have very little in common. Their lives and ideas are worlds apart and which is a source of tension between them. But despite their differences, they are great friends.
