That Summer of ‘95 (Aquel verano del 95)

Historias del Kronen , by Montxo Armendáriz

It’s been 25 years since Montxo Armendáriz brought José Ángel Mañas’ novel Historias del Kronen, runner-up for the 1994 Nadal Award, to the silver screen. In it, the main character, a twenty-something man from Madrid, recounts his journey through the hell that is a summer in the Spanish capital, when debauchery is the only escape that allows you to beat the summer heat.

Kronen's time was one of excess, of nights that ran into days in the bars of Malasaña, on an endless spree that reflected a generation known as Gen X, “the best prepared young people in Spanish history, the children with no future ahead of them”, according to a report by Jesús Rodríguez in the press that year.

Twenty-five summers have passed since then and we want to mark the anniversary with a single screening of the film, in addition to highlighting and reviewing how the city has changed –and with it, its inhabitants and its long summer nights, which are the perfect setting for a film.
