Pedro Almodovar (1949) made his exuberant entry onto the film scene in 1980, riding a post-Franco counter cultural wave in Spain and establishing himself as one of the most distinctive voices. He has made some of the most globally influential films of the past three decades. His genre-defying works mixes camp, melodrama, and humor to explore themes of transgression, desire, and identity. This exhibition coincides with the release of Almodovar's 20th feature, "Julieta" (2016) and includes all of his feature films.
