Two Short Films by Pedro Almodóvar

Strange Way of Life
“Pedro Almodovar’s richly acted, sumptuously photographed Strange Way of Life lives up to its title as a revisionist Western that embraces its classical genre roots while also carving out a very modern way of looking at the past.” —Stephen Garret, Observer.
A short Western drama written and directed by Pedro Almodóvar, Strange Way of Life starring Ethan Hawke and Pedro Pascal as two gunslingers who reunite after many years.
31 minutes

The Human Voice
"The Human Voice is a banquet disguised as a light lunch, heady with flavors; you come away blissfully sated and hungry for more.” —Ty Burr, The Boston Globe.
A woman (Tilda Swinton) watches time pass next to the suitcases of her ex-lover (who is supposed to come pick them up, but never arrives) and a restless dog doesn’t understand that his master has abandoned him.
R; 30 minutes
