Javier Bardem On His Family Values

Academy Award-winning actor Javier Bardem talks the influence of both his mother and his uncle, and explains the importance of making politically-conscious films. Javier's mother, Pilar, became a famous actor in her own right; Javier's late uncle, Juan Antonia Bardem, was a filmmaker who was jailed for his work in Franco-era Spain. Bardem is the producer of a new documentary, 'Sons of the Clouds: The Last Colony', about an unresolved conflict in the Western Sahara region of Northern Africa.

The film is now available to rent or buy on iTunes. Check out the trailer right here, and visit iTunes to watch it.
