I translated the text from Spanish. The channel can be seen for free at

Debut and farewell week
from October 13 to 17

Monday to Friday 0:30 hs (Arg, 11:30 EST)

There's always a first time, which is also the last time.

FILMOTECA devotes one week to unique films, because they are the only and isolated experience as a director of their filmmakers, but specially because they are extroadinary works.

A DEBUT AND FAREWELL week. Movies directed by people who by them were celebrated actors like Charles Laughton and Peter Lorre, by talented writers like Jean Genet, by prestigious screenwriters like Dalton Trumbo, or notorious unknown people that couldn't avoid remaining unknown even after directing a film like John Parker and Herk Hervey.

Damned films that were unfortunate in their first exhibitions but with time became cult classics...

To be shown complete:

Monday: "The Night of the Hunter" by Charles Laughton, with Robert Mitchum, Shelley Winters and Lillian Gish.
Tuesday: "Dementia" (1955) by John Parker and "Un Chant d'Amour" (1950) by Jean Genet.
Wednesday: "Johnny Got His Gun" (1971) by Dalton Trumbo, with Timothy Bottoms, Kathy Fields, and Jason Robards.
Thursday: "Carnival of Souls" (1962) by Herk Hervey, with Candace Hilligoss.
Friday: "Der Verlorene" (1951) by and with Peter Lorre
