Pain and Glory

PAIN AND GLORY FINAL Play Button

Renowned director Salvador Mallo is facing the decline of his career. As he looks back on his past and the path that he has chosen, he questions whether or not there is a life beyond his art. Memories of first love, the early discovery of cinema, childhood joys, and painful loss all flood back. He battles with the separation between his craft and his own life, attempting to fill the void that has brought his filmmaking to a halt. The clever and emotional script brings to life a story of pain, success, solitude, and overcoming with a unique simplicity and spontaneity. Introduction by David Gies (UVA)
