All the gatherings organized by this unique cultural entity of Benalmádena are developed from the 7:00 p.m.in the meeting room on the upper floor of the Casa de la Cultura, with the exception of the cinema-forums organized in collaboration with the Cine Club Más Madera, which take place in the Assembly Hall.
Agenda first quarter of the year
On Wednesday 19 the first cinema forum of the new year will take place, an activity recently released by the Ateneo Libre de Benalmádena in collaboration with the Cine Club Más Madera, which has been reaping great public success due to the interest aroused both by the quality of the screenings and by the guests who participate in the subsequent citizen debate.
On this occasion the documentary chosen will be Sanctuary, which accounts for the expedition of the Artic Sunrise in a Greenpeace campaign to claim the protection of Antarctica. This is the story of how to create the largest marine sanctuary on earth, in the Antarctic Ocean. During the documentary, we accompanied brothers Javier and Carlos Bardem, spokespersons for the Antarctic Sanctuary campaign, in their struggle to obtain the popular support necessary to launch this initiative. Achieving this small victory in the fight to save the environment in the last virgin area of the planet is not an easy task. We will witness how science, politics and social networks combine to get almost 3 million people to support this initiative that ultimately depends only on a political decision.
For the debate after the viewing of Sanctuary there will be the presence of a participant in the AEMET campaigns in Antarctica in March 2018, who is a meteorologist and who has been head of Prediction and Surveillance of the State Meteorological Agency AEMET in Malaga. His name is Fausto Polvorinos Pascual and he is an expert and disseminator of climate change.
On Wednesday January 26, the Bachelor of Arts and Crafts, Lola Recio Barba will bring to those present the figure of Juan de Valdés Leal, Spanish painter and engraver, an artist strictly contemporary of Murillo, who was his greatest pictorial rival in Seville of his time. De Valdés Leal is known mainly for the two late hieroglyphs, painted around 1672 for the church of the Hospital de la Caridad in Seville, where they are still preserved.
In February, on Wednesday 2, the conference offered by the Ateneo Libre de Benalmádena will focus on writing, books and censorship, from the hands of the writer Vladimir Merino strong , who recently presented his last two works:La Colombiana and Balas y violines.
The next appointment of the second month of the year will be on the 9th, and the graduate in Medicine from the University of Granada,Piedad Sánchez Casado, will speak about The vacunas anticovid (RNA Technology). Messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccines teach our cells to make a protein that triggers an immune response within our bodies. To awaken the immune response, the system of many vaccines consists of injecting the attenuated or inactivated germ into our bodies. This is not the case with mRNA vaccines. Instead, these vaccines use an mRNA created in a laboratory to teach our cells to make a protein, or just a portion of a protein, that triggers the immune response of our bodies.
