We had a great time at Festival de Sevilla for the European / Spanish premiere of HOLE IN THE HEAD. The film screened In Competition as part of the prestigious "Endless Revolutions" section, which also included new works by masters Eugène Green and Rita Azevedo Gomes! We were met with sold out shows, great Q&As, and an absolutely fantastic audience for all 3 nights! Cinema is alive in Sevilla!
