CINEMA JOVE CINEMA JOVE CELEBRATES ITS 33RD EDITION IN VALENCIA FROM 23 JUNE TO 1 JULY WITH CYCLES DEDICATED TO PABLO TRAPERO AND URBAN ART. The Argentine director will receive the ‘Luna de Valencia’ award in recognition of his career. The official section will offer an overview of the burgeoning number of filmworks by young filmmakers in Mexico, Argentina, Brazil and Sri Lanka. The films in the ‘Art & the City’ cycle, in turn, will outline and give form to an audiovisual story about graffiti to be projected on the walls of a site in the centre of Valencia. The long-running international festival of Valencia cinema, which unveils a new management team headed by Carlos Madrid this year, begins a new phase as it celebrates the creative talent of filmmakers under 40 years old. The official section features films from countries that are far apart geographically but connected through their high quality and the promising talent showcased in them. The official section consists of 10 titles, and the festival will have the privilege for the first time of presenting one of the films that also appeared in the fortnight

of directors at the Cannes Film Festival recently celebrated in the French city. That is the Colombian film ‘Defense of the Dragon’, by Natalia Santa. The remaining films include ‘Los Años Azules’ by Sofía Gómez Córdova (Mexico), ‘Vigilia’ by Natalia Ledesma (Argentina-Uruguay), ‘Nalu on the Border’ by Cristiane Oliveira (Brazil), Laurent Micheli’s ‘Even Lovers Get the Blues’ (Belgium), ‘Seventeen’ by Monja Art (Germany), Kasia Roslaniec’s ‘Satan Said Dance’ (Poland-Netherlands), ‘Sexy Durga’ by Sanal Kumar Sasidhara (India), and Sanjeewa Pushpakumara's ‘Burning Birds’ (Sri Lanka). All these films fill out a festival line-up that revolves around themes such as sexual identity, the coming-of-age story of the transition from adolescence to adulthood, or conflicts based on race and social class. These issues are addressed from different angles but always from the fresh perspectives offered by these talented young directors. Audiovisual History of Graffiti The cycle dedicated to Urban Art under the title ‘Art & the City’ will project, on one of the walls of a site in the centre of Valencia, titles such as ‘Style Wars’ (Tony Silver, 1983), a landmark reflecting the original spirit and enthusiasm of hip-hop when it exploded on the

streets of New York in the early ‘80s. Also featured will be the ‘Metagrafitti’ collection of assorted short films, the emblematic ‘Exit Through the Gift Shop’ on the elusive urban artist Banksy, the 2014 film ‘Los Hongos’ by Óscar Ruiz Navia (Colombia), Adam Bhala Lough’s 2002 tribute to contemporary New York pictorial art ‘Bomb the System’, and the Italian documentary ‘Fame’ on the vibrant cultural scene the small town of Grottaglie experienced between 2008 and 2012. Webseries In the ‘Webseries’ section, there will be 12 titles selected from the many entries to the competition from countries including the USA, Argentina, Canada, Germany, Australia, Canada, the UK and Italy. The International Film Festival of València – Cinema Jove is organized by the Institut Valencià de Cultura and its focus and objective is promoting the work of young filmmakers. This annual encounter with the latest trends in the audiovisual world is scheduled for 23 June to 1 July, in different venues in the city centre of Valencia.

The energy that you emit is the energy that you will receive. In June, The Beach Boys will be visiting Valencia to put on a show that could well be their last in this fair city. We dedicate this edition to the band for the sheer positivity of their music. All of this despite the suffering & strife the band has suffered internally over the decades…a stoical lesson for us all. In ‘Valencia Music’, we have an exclusive report on the excellent live venue ‘16 Tonelades’, which is bringing more and more international bands to the area. We also have a report on the prestigious ‘CINE JOVE’ film festival. In ‘Restaurant of the month’ we visit the creative and tasty ‘El Llar del Chef’ in a quiet corner of the historic centre. By the beach, we have an insider’s view of the Malvarrosa beach area. In the Rio Turia gardens, we visit Valencia’s now famous Bioparc. We also have a report on ‘Tours Valencia’, which is a novel and very 21st century way to get around Valencia on a number of routes. In ‘Valencia Wines’, expert Ricky Wigley takes a look at vinos from the Alicante area.

BIOPARC VALENCIA Built as part of the Cabacera Park development at the Mislata end of the Turia riverbed, the Bioparc opened in 2008. It is a new-generation zoo where the idea was to move away completely from the bad old days of the ‘Viveros Gardens’ enclosed zoo, embracing the philosophy of ‘zoo immersion’ in line with other developments around the world like Orlando Animal World and the Singapore Zoo. The idea with Bioparc Valencia has been to create large spaces for the animals, which represent different African environments using clever design and indigenous plants and trees. As much as possible, this recreates their natural habitat, mixing animals

which would naturally cohabitate in the wild (avoiding mixing natural predators with their prey, of course, the lions and leopards each get their own area). All of which means the animals are happier and healthier, and we get to feel that we are experiencing something approaching what seeing these animals in the wild would be like. Also, we are visiting their environment rather than them becoming part of ours. However, this is still a zoo and all the issues about keeping wild animals in captivity for our enjoyment remain, but in terms of the welfare of these animals it is clearly a vast improvement on what went before. The commitment of the park to wildlife protection means that part of the ticket price goes to worldwide animal conservation. For the most part, the feeling as you are walking around is that the animals have all the space and

you are just getting the chance to briefly observe them and enjoy them without intruding too much. You can have a beer on the restaurant terrace looking out on zebras and exotic birds. They are completely unbothered by your presence to the point that they don’t seem to even realise you are there. The park stretches over 100,000 square metres and has more than 4,000 animals of 250 different species. It is dedicated entirely to Africa, divided into different areas and habitats. Areas concentrating on Asia and the Americas are planned but, given the present economic climate, they are unlikely to appear in the near future. The Madagascar zone, like the island itself, is separated off from the rest of the park. It is the only part of the park where you walk amongst the animals themselves, lemurs running and

In the Equatorial Africa zone, you walk through what looks like a huge, dark tree trunk and it has crocodiles, tortoises and boas. The Niger Delta area has hippos, mandrill baboons, otters and ducks living together amongst dark sand pools and indigenous trees.

There is a huge, dusty elephant area with tall rock faces, man-made baobab trees and a pool where the elephants swim, which can be quite spectacular if they happen to fancy a dip while you are there. Meerkats (surely everyone’s favourite), mongooses and porcupines each also have their own enclosure.

There is an area dedicated to the green mountain forests of Ethiopia with fiercelooking leopards and, in a separate enclosure, chimpanzees and cranes. Another area represents the valleys of the Congo with its buffalos, pelicans and gorillas who sit and look at you disinterestedly through the glass. The Kitum Cave area (named after the famous caves in Kenya partially ‘mined’ out of the rock by elephants in search of salt) allows you to observe the animals

The largest area of the park is dedicated to the savannah with its giraffes, zebras, rhinos and antelopes all roaming together and, up above and separated by huge rocks, the lions. The savannah area is at the centre of the park and you can walk all the way around it, the path leading you from ground level to where the restaurant is situated, then up above at the level of the lions where you can look down at the giraffes who come up

their enclosure. Ticket prices are 23.80€ for an individual live in the city, it’s well worth getting an annual pass, which works out only slightly more than the one-off price, allowing you to come and go as you please to a place which definitely merits successive visits. This is a huge, respectful and more dignified improvement on what went before and the philosophy of the Bioparc means that Valencia has a zoo which puts many similar institutions to shame.

MALVARROSA BEACH OF VALENCIA People have been making sandcastles and messing about in the water down at Malvarrosa since the mid-19th century but those seven kilometres that separate the city centre from its beaches have often seemed a very long way indeed. The last decade, however, has brought the seaside a little closer. The whole idea of ‘going down the beach’ is, of course, a relatively new invention. For centuries, the areas around Malvarrosa, Cabanyal and Canyamelar, were fishing communities who soon found that there were easier pickings to be had in that other ancient maritime profession, smuggling. The beach was a handy place for boats coming in from Algeria and Morocco to make ‘unscheduled’ stops… before passing through customs at the port on the other side of the bay. Malvarrosa Beach takes its name from the pink hollyhock ‘malvarrosa’ flowers

planted in the area by the botanist Félix Robillard in the early 19th century and it was around this time when it started to become fashionable for the city’s upper and middle classes and their families to come down to the beach to relax and take in the sea air. The fashion had spread from Britain, southwest France and northern Spain. All over Europe, men in stripy bathing suits and large moustaches were going down to the beach to faff around, smoke pipes and pose for photographs, while the womenfolk sheltered under parasols, wide-brimmed hats and 15 layers of petticoats and skirts. This was all considered a little risqué by some. The mayor set out legislation separating the beach into two areas, ‘Las Arenas’, which was only for male bathing, and on the other side of a 200-metre ‘no man’s land’ was ‘Malvarrosa’, which was only for women. The first railway line down to the beach was built in 1852; the station was in the exact spot where the Marina Real tram stop is today. These were golden years for Valencian business and the prosperous bourgeoisie looked to create their very own Brighton, Santander or Biarritz here on the

Mediterranean. Valencia was never able to compete with these more glamorous ‘resorts’ favoured by royalty and the aristocracy. The Mediterranean weather was too warm (having a tan was just not an option for any self-respecting lady of the time) and bizarrely the sea at Valencia was considered “too warm and tepid to be of any advantage to health”. Nevertheless, a pier was constructed (sadly destroyed during an air raid in the Civil War) and, inspired by the royal pavilion at Brighton, two huge neo-classical bathhouses were built, complete with Parthenon-like columns which can still be seen from the beach and are now part of a luxury hotel complex. Restaurants and bars began to line the sea front; many, like La Pepica and Valencia’s oldest restaurant, La Marcelina (1892), still survive today. Work began on a grand project of a large venue with gardens running through the middle which would connect Valencia to its beach. After two or three name changes (including Paseo al Mar and Avenida Lenin), the avenue is now known as Avenida Blasco Ibáñez and it still hasn’t reached the sea over 100 years later. At the turn of the century, the beach

twentyfoursevenvalencia 13


was frequented by great Valencian figures of the time. Many of Sorolla’s greatest works were painted here and Vicente Blasco Ibáñez built a house on the sea front, which has recently been restored and is now a museum. The 1920s however was the start of a slow decline, as fashions among the well-todo started to change. In the ‘50s and ‘60s it was the working classes, unable to afford trips to the French Riviera, who were catching the tram to Malvarrosa (as celebrated in Manuel Vicent’s book of that name) by the thousands each Sunday afternoon. The grand balneario of Las Arenas was now downgraded to a cheap and cheerful sort of Butlins. Families paid the admission and spent the day around the open-air pool (now part of the hotel), the private beach, the children’s park and the open-air cinema. Most Valencians over fifty will have spent many a Sunday afternoon picnicking down at Las Arenas. By the end of the’60s, however, people started to find their way further afield to beaches which were more glamorous and, let’s face it, less likely to have raw sewage pumped into them. Malvarrosa was unable to compete with Benidorm and the

Balearic Islands or even its neighbours like Cullera or Canet. It wasn’t until the ‘90s that Malvarrosa started to clean up its act. In the ‘80s, it had become an important part of Valencia nightlife. At that time, there was no promenade and the dozens of pubs and clubs spilled out onto the beach itself, which made for a great night out but didn’t help in keeping the place clean to attract daytime visitors. The local government decided on a plan to turn things around. The building of the promenade, the setting up of the showers and volleyball courts, the kids’ parks and the cleaning up of the water (Malvarrosa and Cabanyal have both been awarded European Blue Flags again in recent years) created the Malvarrosa we know today. Most of the discos left but the families came back in droves. The past decade has seen the America’s Cup and the Formula One Grand Prix come and go. Lewis Hamilton and company weaved their way around the yachts in the America’s Cup port right next to the beach for five consecutive years between 2008 and 2012. The old Las Arenas complex has

been converted into an impressive fivestar hotel (although it’s a great shame the old swimming pool is no longer open to the public). All this has had a mixed effect on the area. While some of its old charm has undoubtedly been lost along the way, transport links with the city have been much improved. The metro now links Malvarrosa with the airport and tourists and the city’s residents alike are spending more and more time there, enjoying the improved facilities at the beach. The promenade is a popular place for runners and cyclists and new restaurants have arrived. Whether elite sports and superficial event politics were the right way forward for everyone is open to question. Bringing Formula One to Valencia cost more than 117 million euros and now that it’s gone, it won’t be missed by many. Malvarrosa, after all, isn’t quite Monte Carlo. Just as it wasn’t quite Biarritz or Santander back in the 19th century and it wasn’t quite Benidorm in the ‘70s or Mallorca in the 1990s. And thank goodness for that, it is what it should be… a great big, beautiful city park by the sea. David Rhead and José Marín Article © 2017 24/ 7 Valencia

From the kitsch pinky prawn and avocado cocktail of the 70s, to the militant 80s pasta, broccoli tuna mix… or the ‘90s high-flying yuppie, tricolour mozzarella, tomato, avocado, balsamic. As much as music and art, great salads also can encapsulate the aspirations and imagery of a decade. So, what will the salad of the current decade be? As health and environment issues push society towards a less meat-based diet, a new genre of power salads have arrived. Gone are the days where salad generally meant something involving a hopefully not-limp lettuce. The salads of 2017 instead are packed with protein and energy-rich foods. They are given names that make you feel, you will be imbued by the forces of a samurai warrior just by eating them, ready to take life on at a heightened pace. This month’s recipe is indeed one of those. It combines amino acid-rich quinoa, good fat coconut milk and sesame oil, zinc-rich incredible ginger, anti-oxidant watermelon and, of course, that oh-sopopular super food, curly kale. All hail the Kale Salad! PREPARATION

Mix the liquid ingredients with the fresh ginger and leave to stand.

Next, get friendly with your kale and massage the coconut oil into it. Heat the oven to 180C, Gas mark 4. Spread the kale on a baking tray lined with baking parchment. Lightly salt. Toast in the oven until the leaves start to crackle slightly. Just before it is ready, add the finely sliced red onions and the cumin seeds. Remove from oven before they start to burn. Mix the quinoa with the prepared coconut and lime dressing. Mix in the kale, red onions and cumin seeds. Chop the watermelon and mix in with the salad. Finally top with pistachio nuts to decorate.

MARCELINO TO LEAD VALENCIA NEXT SEASON On May 11, it was officially announced that Marcelino García Toral would become the new manager of Valencia CF. He now becomes the 19th different name to head the club since the turn of the century. During this time, household names like Rafa Benítez, Claudio Ranieri, Gary Neville and Cesare Prandelli have come and gone with varying degrees of success. The last manager to win any piece of major silverware was Ronald Koeman, when his side beat Getafe 3-1 in the 2008 Copa del Rey at the wonderful Vicente Calderón Stadium. Unfortunately, the stadium, like Valencia's victory, is now just a distant memory, as it is currently in the process of being demolished to make way for a park that will be aptly named ‘Park Atlético Madrid’. That year Valencia had the quality of players like David Silva, Juan Mata and David Villa playing in that final whilst Marcelino was still honing his managerial craft with Racing Santander. Spells at Real Zaragoza and Sevilla followed, but he really made his name with Valencia’s neighbours, Villarreal, by taking them to three top six places and a Europa League run in 2016 that

ended in the semi-final at the hands of Liverpool. At the beginning of last season, he was sacked for vociferously clashing with the Villarreal board of directors. Since then, media punditry on Sky has followed and frequent name links with vacant positions of La Liga and English clubs. It was no secret that Marcelino was on Peter Lim’s wants list and no surprise when he agreed to take over after a visit to Asia to see the Valencia owner. The general feeling is there will be a radical change of faces in personnel by the time the new season kicks off. One of the first things Marcelino will need to do is make a decision on the goalkeeper. Yoel Rodríguez has joined Eibar after a successful loan period but Mat Ryan is returning from Genk to give Valencia three top goalkeepers to choose from. Diego Alves has quashed leaving rumours by stating he wants to stay at Mestalla. Local favourite Jaume Domènech ended the season in prime position to keep the role after a string of excellent performances with the first team. The defence was fragile for the most of last season but looked at its best when Garay and Mangala joined forces to marshal the central defence. The latter is now back at Manchester City after his loan period finished. However, many Valencia fans are hopeful that he will return to Mestalla next season on a

permanent deal. Other loanees look less likely to return. With Atlético Madrid under a transfer embargo until 2018, Guilherme Siqueira may be wanted back by his parent club. Coupled with this is the fact that Toni Lato made an impact in the handful of games he played at left back and is ready-made competition for Gayà. Mario Suárez fell out of favour and Munir has got a lukewarm reception from fans after an uninspiring loan move from Barcelona failed to live up to expectations. Piatti is also confirmed as an Espanyol player for next season after a convincing spell in the Catalan capital. So, he is another to leave Mestalla. Negredo, Tropi, Nando, Rúben Vezo, Robert Ibáñez and Vinícius Araújo have all returned after spells with other clubs. At least half of them are likely to find opportunities limited under the new regime and could be farmed out once again, or sold to raise funds for purchases. The good news for Los Chés fans is that Simone Zaza has completed a permanent move from West Ham and so has the Chilean international Fabián Orellana from Celta Vigo. With solid competition waiting in the Valencia Mestalla team for opportunities, the chances are there will be more people leaving than staying put during the summer months.

Marcelino will start work with Valencia CF at the beginning of July in the French base of Évian-les-Bains. His first game in charge will be a friendly against Lausanne in Switzerland on 12 July and then three days later, they play Sporting Lisbon at a venue to be determined. After returning from France, the squad have a few days break before flying to Canada for a friendly contest against the New York Cosmos in Regina. Another friendly is scheduled for the North America tour, this time in the States on either 24 or 25 July, against a side as yet to be determined. The final confirmed friendly is on 30 June, when Valencia go to England to take on Eddie Howe’s side Bournemouth. This is almost a year to the day to last season’s pre-season encounter at the Vitality Stadium that ended in a 1-1 draw, with Enzo Pérez being on target for the Spaniards. The only home game scheduled at present before the League starts on 19 August is the annual Trofeo Naranja

that will be the week before, on the 12th – the visitors again are yet to be confirmed. It is likely other fixtures will be added in due course but, at the moment, many of the Valencia fans are still concentrating on the ‘B’ team’s push for promotion and the exciting Cup run of the ‘Valencia Femininos’. The ladies won their recent quarterfinal of the Copa de S.M. la Reina by beating Athletic Club in San Sebastián 3-1 to reach the semi-finals for the third consecutive year. They now have the daunting task of facing the ladies of FC Barcelona for a place in the final at the Ciudad del Fútbol de Las Rozas, in Madrid in the middle of June. The Valencia Mestalla ‘B’ team are also looking to end the season on a high, after beating Celta Vigo ‘B’ in the first phase of the promotion play-offs. Next up is Real Murcia and 17,000 fans cheered Los Chés to victory in the first leg of the two-leg contest played at Mestalla. The return leg is at Nueva Condomina on either 10 or 11 June.

Finally, Levante UD have their last

game of the season against Huesca at the Ciudad de Valencia on Saturday 10 June. Huesca are in seventh position

and need a result in order to reach the play-offs, whilst the home side will be hoping to end the successful season

on a winning note and celebrate in true champions style. John Howden VALENCIA CF Mestalla stadium, Aragón/ Facultats metro, lots of buses incl. 9, 10, 12, 29, 30, 31, 32, 41, 79, 80.

DO Alicante shows its new wines in Dénia Each year the Denominaciones de Origen (DOs) show their wines during the summer and June is the chosen month. Alicante have their ‘Winecanting’ Festival on 5 June (public admitted), to be held in MARQ. DO Valencia hold theirs under the Opera House on 12 June (entry by invitation) and DO UtielRequena take over Las Arenas Hotel on 19 June for ‘Placer Bobal’ (also by invitation only). DO Alicante introduced its Salón Profesional last year and invited restaurants, sumilleres and the press to a private invitation before the main event. This year they repeated it but, recognizing the importance of the holiday resorts up the coast, held a second event in Dénia on 29 May. VÍ Vid were very pleased to be able to attend and taste the new crop of wines from this DO. Eighteen bodegas showed their wines and this is a selection which impressed us. David Carbonell has been making wines from viognier (and other varieties) at Vins del Comtat for as long as we have known the bodega and was a pioneer

of producing the variety in the region. Like us, he believes it has adapted very well to its new home. He produces two versions, a 12%ABV young 2016 white which is full of peach and spice on the nose and has a spicy, long, dry finish in the mouth. His alternative is fermented in barrel with a further two months crianza in oak. If the first is gutsy, this is elegant and refined, it has all the fruit but also a vanilla and cream touch in the mouth. (2016, 12.5% ABV). His young red, a 14.5% ABV monastrell is vermillion in colour, from 2015 with three months in oak and is full of red and black fruit, very easy to drink with a nice touch of oak in the finish. The MO is cabernet sauvignon with a little monastrell, a deep cherry colour with oak, vanilla and toast on the nose. In the mouth, deep, very smooth with a touch of tobacco in the finish. Bocopa have just released the second edition of their flagship ‘Fuego Lento’, from monastrell, syrah and Alicante bouschet. Deep garnet colour, lovely sweet fruit, like jam, sharp red and black fruit in the mouth, smooth tannins and soft oak. Limited edition. The cooperative at Mañan produces a very good selection of wines but the new rosado from syrah excels, a strawberry pink, clean, fresh wine, with redcurrant fruit and a clean, long dry finish. A favourite.

Finca Collado, the ‘bodega de referencia’ in Salinas, showed all their new wines, including the legendary white from moscatel and chardonnay with 12.5% ABV. Very clean and fresh on the nose with apricot fruit and hints of pineapple in the mouth, the chardonnay gives good acidity and structure. A fullbodied white with hints of citrus acidity. For us, the 2016 is the best vintage produced to date. The rosado from merlot with a bit of monastrell is also pale strawberry in colour, very fresh on the nose, light red fruits but in the mouth, it has depth, good acidity and a long dry finish with minerality. Their 2016 syrah is creamy, fresh and full, but an easy-to-drink young wine with potential to keep for 2-3 years. Carabibas produce blockbuster red wines, also in Salinas. ‘La Viña del Carpintero’ 2014 is monastrell and merlot. Black cherry with long legs (14.5% ABV) Mature black and red fruits on the nose, rich in the mouth with nicely balanced fruit and oak. The ‘VS 2014’ has nine months in oak and is a deep black cherry with the legs colouring the glass. On the nose it is soft fruit, but in the mouth, this 2014 from cabernet sauvignon, monastrell and merlot is big and chewy! They also make a reserve version with 21 months in oak from the same wine as the VS. This is not so youthful in the glass, fruitier on the nose but you also note

twentyfoursevenvalencia 43


the effect of oak, and is smoother and rounder in the mouth. For serious meat dishes! The bodega of Joan de la Casa in Benissa has been described as a ‘friki’ but chatting to him I found his different approach to making wines quite sensible and worth his efforts! He makes his whites from moscatel by picking the grapes later, when the sugar content and concentration is higher. The grapes are macerated on their skins, left in contact with their lees and, in the case of ‘Nimi Tossal’, enjoys oaking as well. Nimi 2013 is 13.5% ABV, gold in colour, from 45-year-old vines grown on white chalky soils. The nose is very complex, anise, orange flower, orange peel, and this is repeated in the mouth which is complex, concentrated and has a very long dry finish. The 2012 vintage of this wine has more structure, is deeper

gold in colour, and in fact every facet is deeper or more concentrated than the younger wine. Part of this will be evolution, the rest the difference in vintage, but these are dry moscatels worthy of searching for (you can ring the bodega!) The ‘Tossal 2012’ is fermented in barrel and then spends a further 12 months in the bottle before release. Even deeper gold in colour, it has honey, notes of oak and spice. In the mouth vanilla and fruit, orange peel, very different! There are two reds from giró, a local variety with vines between 40-80 years of age. The 2012 has 12 months in American oak, is cherry red, with black fruit, and is medium-bodied. Nice fruity finish. The other version has 18 months oak and is blended with tempranillo. Blackberry fruit and a creamy complex flavour, round. Very nice.

Finally, we tried ‘Essens Chardonnay’

from Vinessens in Villena, a bodega

we found six years ago or so and

which exports to the UK. This fresh Mediterranean chardonnay is fermented

in oak barrels, has nice tropical notes and a light, long dry finish.

The wines are generally available from the bodegas directly.
