The Film Society of Lincoln Center will present “The Last Laugh: An Alternate History of Spanish Comedy,” a series focusing on the tradition of grotesque humor throughout the history of Spanish cinema, from December 12-18, and will include appearances by Santiago Aguilar, José Luis Cuerda, Isaki Lacuesta, and Óscar Pérez. Politically charged, with healthy doses of black humor, the films in the series portray how drastically Spanish culture and society have changed over the last 60 years at the same time that they show how many aspects of Spain have hardly changed at all. The series includes: "20 Centimeters" by Ramón Salazar, "Amanece, que no es poco" by José Luis Cuerda, “Astronauts" by Santi Amodeo, "Holy Thriller" by María Cañas, "Caution to the Wind" by Isaki Lacuesta, "Justino: A Senior Citizen Killer" by Santiago Aguilar and Luis Guridi, "The Last Circus" by Álex de la Iglesia, "Mommy’s a Fool" by Santiago Lorenzo and several classics including "El verdugo" by Luis García Berlanga.
