El botón de nácar

Patricio Guzmán at the Filmoteca

Tribute is paid to the recent work of this Chilean filmmaker in the form of the screening of five outstanding films.

Patricio Guzmán conceives of his art as a tool that he uses to protest against injustice, inequality, tyranny and the violation of human rights and in favour of diversity, integration and respect. His work was marked at its inception by an event that left a lasting impression on the contemporary history of South America, and in particular on Chile: the coup d'etat carried out against the government of Salvador Allende and the subsequent decades-long military dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet. Guzmán's work is key to understanding the seriousness of that moment and to keeping alive the memory of that period of democracy. Barcelona's Filmoteca is now paying tribute to his oeuvre over six days in a cycle of five films under the title 'Patricio Guzmán, the memory of Chile'.

From 25 to 30 January, the Filmoteca will screen five relatively recent films by Patricio Guzmán: 'El botón de nácar' (2015), the ten-minute documentary 'Oscar Saa, el técnico de las estrellas' (2010), the two political short films 'Chile, una galàxia de problemes' (1997) and 'Memoria obstinada' (2010), and the documentary 'Salvador Allende' (2004). There will be two opportunities to see each film.

Additional information is available from the Filmoteca website.
