The Italian director Ruggero Deodato and the North-American producer and director Mick Garris will be the jury to the new European Feature Film Award, promising to be one of MOTELX’s highlights this year. Both of them will sit down for a talk with the audience reminiscing about their past experiences during the golden years of the 70s and 80s. In Cinema São Jorge, 11 of September, at 19h00 (free entrance).    

During the special screenings, Mick Garris will also be present to screen “Critters 2”, directed in the late 80s and becoming a cult classic, along with Canadian writer and programmer Shelagh Rowan-Legg who will present the restored version of “In a Glass Cage” (“Tras el Cristal”) (Spain, 1986), first feature film by Agustí Villaronga with Marisa Paredes, before her masterclass.
