Jose Diaz, Tabernas' mayor, has praised Pedro Almodovar as a director from La Mancha who once again places the "media focal" on the Spanish Southeast. He chose the arid landscapes and mythical decorations of Tabernas to film 'Extrana forma vida'.
Europa Press was informed by the mayor that Almodovar, a director as award-winning as well as renowned, resorts to Tabernas to promote the desert. This is something he appreciates.
He also spoke out about the importance of international actors like Ethan Hawke who will be starring in the film. The effect was already evident last year when Viggo Mortesen, a Hollywood actor, went to Tabernas in October 2021 for filming of "Eureka".
There have been no formal contacts with the Consistory to request permits. However, evidence suggests that the director and his crew were in Tabernas last month to film at selected locations.
According to El Deseo, the two protagonists will be played in the role of Ethan Hawke, Pedro Pascal and the "young promise" Jason Fernandez and Jose Condessa. Manu Rios, George Steane, George Steane, George Steane, George Steane, Manu Rios, and Pedro Casablanc will also play the part. Saint Laurent by Anthony Vaccarello, who will also be responsible for the costume design, is an associate producer of the project. It is expected that the filming will take place around mid-August. This alludes back to Amalia Rodrigues' famous fado.
Diaz appreciated the fact that shootings have increased in recent months. Since March 2020, 60 productions of every kind have been shot. These range from spots to movies to spot clips through video clips like the one that was starred by the Estonian representative at the last edition.
Half of these productions have occurred in the past six months. He hopes that the presence "media stars" will help this set and some of its mythical stages such as Oasys Minihollywood which, he said, "was the most visited place in the province>>> in the past year."
"It is being noticed, there is an influx in June, there are a large number of people, and it is also noticeable among foreigners", stated the mayor. He also recalled the promotion work carried out by the Consistory through the Almeria Western Film Festival. This year, the festival will celebrate its twelfth anniversary from September 28 to October 2. In which Gianni Garko will receive the Tabernas de Cine award.
