El Faro del Misterio

"The Mistery Lighthouse" exhibition at the 2016 Horror Festival

Santa Clara island is the emblem of the Mystery Lighthouse. Always visible, always idyllic, picture-postcard perfect. But beneath its shiny silhouette lies a long shadow of disease, war and death. They even say that some summer nights a strange light can be seen flashing near the beach. A source of light that moves slowly, at walking pace. And then, looking through the archives, we learn about the drama of a lighthouse keeper who, on the night of 22nd August 1933, having fallen seriously ill, did everything he could to attract the attention of the coast, seeking help. But they didn't make it in time. And the lighthouse keeper died from a perforated intestine.


"Fantastic Japan, 21st century" cycle at the festival

The Festival has always dedicated special attention to Japanese cinema, present every year with several titles in its official programme, and in various seasons and publications: Japanese fantasy and horror cinema (season in 2001 and no. 5 in the Festival's Book Collection) and Japanese animated cinema (retrospective in 2008 and book no. 11).
