Emakumea Ilargian/La mujer en la luna, Fritz Lang, Germany, 1929, 161'

* Live music: Javier Pérez de Azpeitia (piano).

Thirty years ago, Professor Georg Manfeldt was ridiculed by his colleagues when he assured them that there was more gold on any mountain in the Moon than on Earth. After those three decades, Wolf Helius resumes work on the idea and tries to build a rocket to go to the Moon. More and more people keep joining the project. A company controlling the gold market undertakes to finance it, but it has hidden intentions: it wants to be able to control the gold supply on Earth.
