The Pantalla Pavelló film cycle features a selection of films related to architecture
Last June the Mies Van der Rohe Pavilion celebrated the 30th anniversary of its reconstruction. The pavilion started life as one of the major attractions of the 1929 Barcelona International Exposition in which it was the German pavilion and a symbol of the Modern Movement. After the exposition it was dismantled but was rebuilt and reopened on 2 June 1986. Now, 30 years after its reopening, the Mies van del Rohe Pavilion is a very active cultural hub with noteworthy activities such as the Pantalla Pavelló film cycle.
The focus of the cycle is architecture and the pavilion is therefore an ideal location for screening these films. The next on the cycle’s schedule is El hombre de al lado, a film by Mariano Cohn and Gastón Duprat with subtitles in English.
Introducing the film will be one of the curators of the cycle Daniele Porretta. It was shot at Casa Curutchet in La Plata, Argentina, which is the only residential project carried out by Le Corbusier in Latin America. The film tells the story of the clash between two neighbours, Leonardo and Víctor – two people with different ways of being and living, separated by a simple wall.
