Spanish Film Days: The Rocket from Calabuch

13 June 2023 @ 7:30 pm

 Dr. George Hamilton (Edmund Gwenn) is a scientist expert in rockets who decided to take a break from his space and military research. He finds refuge in Calabuch, a Mediterranean village in the coast of Spain that he finds marvellous because the people just live and preserve their sense of humour and friendship. After a variety of occupations, he lands in the town’s pyrotechnical workshop where he would help build a rocket to beat Guardamar in the fireworks competition held for the patron saint’s festivities. The result is so spectacular that a photo of the creators is published in the provincial newspaper, thus revealing the whereabouts of Professor Hamilton, who is called to return to his country.


Film organized by the Spanish embassy.
