VIENDOMOVIES CELEBRATES THANKSGIVING DAY WITH FILMS FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY
ViendoMovies, the channel owned by SOMOSTV (a company chaired by Luis Villanueva and part of the SOMOS Group) that programs the best movies produced in Spanish, 24 hours a day and without commercial breaks, celebrates Thanksgiving with light programming and with light comedies, dedicated to the whole family. For this date of family celebration that is customary to do at home, the channel has programmed a set of international productions appropriate for this festivity. Among the premieres are La Musiquita Por Dentro (Dominican Republic), La Odisea de los Giles (Argentina), and Bajo el Mismo Techo (Spain).
ViendoMovies is characterized by celebrating with specially selected films the festivities of the communities of the Latino market and the general population of the United States and Puerto Rico. In the same way, the channel dedicates special dates to the diffusion of film talent in Spanish (actors and directors) and to specific genres (comedies, romances, dramas, etc.). This flexibility is essential in a channel that supports an industry that has impacted international audiences.
ViendoMovies begins this special programming with the premiere of La Musiquita Por Dentro. A shy, nerdy guy gets advice from his co-worker to land the woman of his dreams. Directed by Ernesto Alemany, it is a Dominican film nominated four times for the La Silla Award, under the categories of Best Comedy, Best Song, Best Sound Design and Best Editing.
From Argentina and winner of the Goya Award for Best Ibero-American Film, comes the comedy La Odisea de los Giles. A group of residents of a town in the province of Buenos Aires discover that the savings they had in the bank for the creation of a cooperative were withheld due to a scam carried out by a lawyer and a bank manager. It was also nominated for prestigious awards such as the Platino Awards and the Ariel Awards for Best Ibero-American Film and Best Actor for its leading man Ricardo Darín.
From Spain, Bajo el Mismo Techo comes to make the ViendoMovies audience laugh. Directed by Juana Macías, at the height of the real estate bubble, Nadia (Sílvia Abril) and Adrian (Jordi Sánchez) buy the house of their dreams. Then they start their own world war when she files for divorce from him.
Apart from laughing all night, you can enjoy Chilean, Mexican and Spanish productions such as Fuerzas Especiales (Chile), Maquinaria Panamericana (Mexico), and Zipi y Zape y La Isla del Capitán (Spain).
