The study session will include a screening of the film Cobardes. Carmen Herrero will introduce the film in Spanish and English, providing relevant historical and contextual information as well as key vocabulary to understand some of the key aspects of the film.

The screening will be followed by a series of language exercises in Spanish based on the film, its characters, settings and contexts. Themes discussed during the session will include adolescence, family and bullying.

A powerful drama from the directors of Tapas, 14 year-old Gaby is a victim of constant bullying at the hands of his classmate. Neither his family nor his teachers are aware of his situation, and the young Gaby takes solace in his nascent relationship with friend Carla.

As the adults in Gaby’s world struggle with their own personal bullies, Gaby turns to pizza shop owner Silverio, whose ‘eye for an eye’ advice creates further problems.
