PortAventura Convention Centre welcomed onsite the Mediterranean Thriller “Son of Cain”, in its fifth week of filming, to shoot the final scenes of the film. Yet again the PortAventura Business & Events Convention Centre demonstrates its versatility and flexibility as a multi-functional space that adapts to the different needs of clients. Today, Friday 10 May 2013 sees the film’s premiere in Tarragona, which will be attended by the stars and main crew members.
“Son of Cain“ is a film based on Ignacio García Valiño’s bestseller “Dear Cain”, finalist in the 2006 V City of Torrevieja Novel Award. It tells the story of Nico Albert, a difficult and exceptionally gifted teenager with a unique obsession: chess. Concerned by their son’s strange attitude, his parents decide to hire the services of child psychologist Julio Beltrán. Through therapy and their common love for chess, Julio will enter Nico’s disquieting inner world and complex relationship with his apparently model family, where discovering the truth in time will be the only way to avoid the essence of evil taking over their lives.
The film’s director, Jesús Monllaó, has written, produced and directed 3 short films, all receiving national and international awards. The film-maker, born in Tarragona in 1967, chose PortAventura’s Convention Centre as one of the main locations for his first feature film. The cast includes the actors: Jesús Coronado (Nico’s father) who has recently been awarded the Malaga Sur Prize at the 2013 Malaga Festival in honour of his professional career; Maria Molins (Nico’s mother), star of the film “El Bosc” for which she received the Gaudí Award for Best Leading Actress; Julio Manrique (Nico’s therapist), an renowned actor of cinema, television and theatre; David Solans (Nico), who has made his acting debut at the age of 16 years old with this film; Abril García (Laura, Julio’s niece); Mercè Rovira and Jack Taylor.
