Not long ago we told you about La Mesías, the Spanish series on Movistar Plus that has been considered by critics as the best of the year and that has raised the figure of its directors, Los Javis, to a much higher level than they had achieved as directors of Paquita Salas, La Llamada and Veneno. But this was only the beginning of their journey.
While we wait to see what will happen at the Feroz Awards, where La Mesías has received eleven nominations, the fiction has achieved another great unexpected achievement: it will be the first Spanish fiction series to be presented at the Sundance Film Festival. After its national premiere in San Sebastian, La Mesías will begin its world premiere at this prestigious festival.
A historic achievement for a Spanish series
From January 18 to 28, 2024, the festival will be held in the town of Park City, near Salt Lake City (Utah, United States), and The Messiah will premiere in its Episodic section. This section is not trivial, since it is where Xavier Dolan’s The Night Logan Killed His Father premiered. In other words, it will achieve a first-rate international projection.
“It is an honor that La Mesías is part of one of the festivals that has hosted the most inspiring titles throughout its history,” said Los Javis. “Many of the films that have made us love cinema have come from there. We still can’t believe it.
While we wait for the next steps of the Spanish fashion creators, we also know that the Javis themselves will present the 2024 Goya Gala. In this way, not only their internal talent will be projected around the world, but also their ability as showmen. We’ll see if the public can stand them as much as they can stand La Mesías.
