Unit 7 (Grupo 7)

This movie screening is a part of a program of Panorama Europe film festival of new european films. Known as Disappearing Act for its first five years, the newly re-named festival continues the mission of showcasing vital European filmmaking as distribution remains challenging for foreign language films in the United States. Panorama Europe gives New York audiences access to what may be their only chance to see these acclaimed films from the festival circuit on the big screen or at all. This year’s festival will take place at Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria and at the Bohemian National Hall in Manhattan. It was programmed by David Schwartz, Chief Curator at Museum of the Moving Image.

With Alberto Rodríguez in person 
Presented by the Consulate General of Spain
Opening night reception sponsored by Spain Culture New York-Consulate General of Spain and the festival partners

Spain. Dir. Alberto Rodríguez. 2012, 96 mins. Digital projection. With Antonio de la Torre, Mario Casas. Narcotics squad Unit 7 tries to clean up the mean streets of late-1980s Seville in this gritty, gripping thriller. In the tradition of 70s policiers like The French Connection and Serpico, Unit 7 balances its high-octane action with engrossing character development, as the four-man squad succumbs to the lure of corruption. Anchored by a bravura turn by Mario Casas as a rookie who goes from wet-behind-the-ears recruit to sadistic rogue operative, this gut-punching crime saga raises probing moral questions while delivering slick genre thrills.

Tickets: $12 public / free for Museum members. Order online or call 718 777 6800 to reserve tickets. For more information on membership and to join online, visit our membership page.
