George Steane, José Provencio, Alfredo Picazo and Luis Soto, students TAI, squander talent in Cannes
Community talent TAI continues to cross borders, on this occasion, it reaches Cannes to demonstrate the capabilities of four artists. The School has as one of its main objectives to promote the talent of its Community to be able to outsource it to the industry. That is why today we celebrate the arrival of these young artists at one of the most important international film festivals.
George Steane, originally from Valladolid (2001), is a last-year student at the Bachelor's Degree in Performing Arts and Screen Acting de TAI. The actor arrives at the Official Section of Cannes as part of the cast of the new medium-length film by Pedro Almodóvar, strange way of life with Ethan Hawke and Pedro Pascal.
"Working with Almodóvar has been lucky, you learn a lot with him and you find a bit of that light, a north to which to direct"
Synopsis of strange way of life
It tells the story of a man riding a horse across the desert that separates him from Bitter Creek. He comes to visit Sheriff Jake. Twenty-five years earlier both the sheriff and Silva, the rancher who rides out to meet him, worked together as gun-for-hire. Silva comes under the pretext of meeting his childhood friend again, and indeed they celebrate their meeting, but the next morning Sheriff Jake tells him that the reason for his trip is not the memory of his old friendship .
José Provencio is studying the Master's Degree in Film Direction and TV Series at TAI and his piece, I come to look for you covers the issue of LGTBI leisure, specifically gay saunas. The short film, distributed by Moira Pictures (the distributor of cinema of the University School TAI), will be at Short Film Corner between May 21 and 24 and will be presented at the video library of the Short Film Corner in Cannes, a collection of recently completed short films.
