Renowned Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar made a name for himself during the post-Franco era in Spain by creating distinctive films in cinema. His works often were about the new Spanish culture, social landscape and environment, by mixing up genres of melodrama, humor, desire, identity and many more.
Known for his offbeat, colorful characters with complexities, he became a two-time Academy Award winner with the films All About My Mother (1999) and Talk to Her (2002).
Keep your schedule open for the upcoming show Pedro Almodóvar at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, Nov. 29.
