Abycine, pretty good really

The static parts of the site for the excellent Albacete International Film Festival are all OK, and the bits for 2010 are fucked but still reasonably comprehensible, with something of the mendacious, incoherent charm of blurbs for Soviet-sponsored Cold War literary shindigs:

ABYCINE is also a claim of a contemporary culture place for young people, a meeting point for young Spanish cinema professional people from a city which is far away from the clichés developed from the ancient generations.

Reasonably comprehensible is still, however, a fucking disgrace when you consider that the regional government has thrown away 640 million on Ciudad Real airport, and translation perfection for Abycine would have cost a couple of hundred euros at most. Cultural Albacete, get your lobbying arse in gear!

Observing the Stalinist charm of old Francoist school -nothing else it is, and at that totally ancient cliché- I let one word slowly melt on my tongue:

"International".

More alucine than Abycine.

Saying things twice does not make me double-right, so I withdraw the second comment.
