Film makers Pere Portabella and Albert Serra and photographers Joan Fontcuberta and Roc Herms put the final touches to the series of inter-generational conversations
The series Creadors en dos temps comes to a close with conversations between film makers Pere Portabella and Albert Serra and photographers Joan Fontcuberta and Roc Herma. The series, organised by the Palau Foundation and the National Council for Culture and Arts (CoNCA), was designed to connect the present and the future via conversations between artists and creators from different generations.
The conversation on film featuring Pere Portabella and Albert Serra will take place on Thursday the 4th of December in the Filmoteca de Catalunya. Director of such well-known films as The Silence Before Bach, El Sopar (Dinner) and Cuadecuc, vampir and producer of films such as Luis Buñuel’s Viridiana, Portabella is one of the most important figures in avant-garde Catalan cinema. Serra, for his part, is one of the current Catalan film makers with the most international projection. Winner of the Best Film award at the Locarno Film Festival for Story of My Death, he has also presented El cant dels ocells and Honour of the Knights at the Cannes Film Festival. The conversation will be presented by Isona Passola, producer, film maker, spokesperson for CoNCA and president of the Catalan Film Academy, and moderated by Esteve Riambau, director of the Filmoteca de Catalunya.
The series will close with a conversation about photography on the 9th of December in the Fundació Foto Colectania featuring Joan Fontcuberta and Roc Herma. Photographer, teacher, essayist and critic, Fontcuberta is one of the indisputable captains of Catalan photography and his work has been exhibited in some of the most prestigious museums in the world. Herms, for his part, is an upcoming talent in the world of photography and visual art with a style that transgresses conventional photographic language through its fusion with technology subcultures.
The conversation between Pere Portabella and Albert Serra will take place on the 4th of December at 7 pm in the Filmoteca de Catalunya while the dialog between Joan Fontcuberta and Roc Herma will take place on the 9th, beginning at 7.30 pm in the Fundació Foto Colectania.
