  • The prize winner, known for his roles in numerous Galician series, will hold a meeting with the public as part of the festival.

Actor Alfonso Agra, from Arzúa, will receive the Galician Cinema Award of the FICBUEU 2021, a prize that recognizes the trajectory of professionals in the Galician audiovisual industry and that previously received performers such as Antonio Durán ‘Morris’, Mabel Rivera, Luis Zahera and Melania Cruz. In addition, the honoree will have a meeting with the public in which some of the most unknown facets of his long career will be revealed.

Alfonso Agra started in the world of performance in the 80s with the company Artello from Vigo. For two decades, he alternated the works in this theatre group with shows by the Centro Dramático Galego, such as Os vellos non deben de namorarse, and he would co-starring the acclaimed O florido pénsil later. However, he is best known for his roles in Galician series such as Pratos Combinados, Mareas Vivas and Serramoura.

Agra also has experience as a host of both news and entertainment programs. In the field of dubbing, he voiced popular characters such as Yamcha from Dragon Ball. On the big screen, we saw him in the films Entre bateas and Días de voda, along with many others. In the last years, he consolidated his career by joining the cast of Galician series with international projection, such as Fariña, in which he played the narco Manuel Bustelo, and recently the Netflix production El desorden que dejas.

These and many other facets of the actor, like his foray into the world of short film, will be addressed in the ‘Meeting with Alfonso Agra’, which will be held on Saturday, September 18 at 11 am at the FICBUEU Meeting Point, located in the multipurpose room of the Centro Social del Mar. The filmmaker Gaspar Broullón, from Marín, will be in charge of conducting the in-depth interview with the winner of the Galician Cinema Award, to whom the attendees will also be able to make their questions.
