Starting on February, every Thursday at 6:30 pm you can come to Malagalingo to watch for free a Spanish short film with an approximate duration of between 10 and 20 minutes.
All of them will be in Spanish language and with subtitles in Spanish when it is possible to find them or with English subtitles when it is not possible.
At the end of the short film until 7:30 pm we will also have a little chat in spanish to comment on the film and practice a little Spanish language
You are all invited to attend for free every Thursday (UNTIL FULL CAPACITY).
We are in Torrox Costa, just opposite Mercadona and BBVA, in the main entrance door that is between MAPFRE and ÓPTICA SALTO, in the first floor. Our School is located one step away from Hotel Iberostar, so it has a very simple and free parking always available on the esplanade right next to the hotel. You also can find us on google.
Every Monday we will publish in Digamextra the title of the short film for the next Thursday or you can also know it by entering our facebook page https://www.facebook.com/malagalingo/

Invitation from Ayuntamiento de Velez-Malaga
Opening of the Exhibition “The Rockfaces” – Morfología y Erosion
Paintings from Maren Wellendorf (Torrox)
Tuesday, 19. feb. 2019 at 8 pm
Until 2008 Maren Wellendorf lived in the art village Worpswede in Germany. Ten years ago she established her studio near Torrox. Her painings had been showed in Hamburg, Frankfurt, Bremen and Malaga. During the last two years she started a new series called “Rockfaces”. It is the result of studying the changing morphology of the mountains/landscape, but in details. The breaking rocks show the running time and life in slow motion, the transiency.
“My paintings show the structures, the lines and forms, of a visual reality. I call it realistic structuralism.”
The Axarquia TV will show a short documentation.

Sponsored Walk For Homeless Veterans: Charity Walk Torrox Pueblo To Gibraltar
Craig has been raising money for many different charities by walking long distances over many years.
Like the previous charities this one is extremely important as it helps our veterans through very tough times and especially through the crisis of being homeless.
Myself and my nephew will be walking 111 miles over 4 days (over 4 Marathons) starting in Torrox and finishing at the top of the Rock of Gibraltar beginning on the 17 April. This will be the biggest challenge I have ever undertaken. We are hoping to raise funds and we seek sponsors.
Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1995802170725500/?ref=br_rs
Here is a link to Just Giving for Craig so you can read more. The charity is SSAFA
SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity, has been providing lifelong support to our Forces and their families since 1885. In 2017, our staff and team of volunteers helped over 73,227 people, from Second World War veterans to young men and women who have served in more recent conflicts.
Craig Dignam and Danny O’Connor
