The University of La Laguna Film Club has programmed a film season that is deservedly dedicated to Alejandro Amenábar, one of biggest directors in Spanish cinema of all time.

Five films have been chosen from his filmography, including 'Agora', which will be shown on 29th September, and 'While at War', which was recently released and will end the tribute to the director on 3rd October.

Student of the prestigious Faculty of Information Sciences at the Complutense University of Madrid, Amenábar knew from a very young age that he wanted to be a filmmaker. He started his career by making shorts, such as 'Himenóptero' and 'Luna', although it iswas not until 1996 that he dared to shoot his first feature film, 'Thesis', that ended up being a commercial success. For ‘Thesis’, Amenábar won an impressive five Goya awards, including Best New Director, Best Film and Best Original Screenplay. After the success of 'Thesis', the director again took his place behind the camera in 1998, shooting 'Open your eyes’, starring Eduardo Noriega and Penelope Cruz. The film became one of the most successful Spanish films of all time and even managed to seduce the American public. In 2001 Amenábar shot a film in English for the first time; 'The Others', which starred Nicole Kidman.
