Chema García Ibarra Selects

“I have selected some of my favourite films. I've included the best film of the 1970s (Don't Torture a Duckling), the best film of the 1980s (Full Moon in Paris), the extraordinary gem that is Malatesta's Carnival of Blood, the film that has my favourite joke in film history (Heathers), the film where the most Cuba Libres are requested in film history (Beware of a Holy Whore), my favourite little monster (Elmer from Brain Damage) and the film that works as a hypnosis session (The Mystery of Picasso)… All my Selects are films that I love with passion (and violence) if necessary.” — Chema García Ibarra
