This popular Catalan actor will be presenting a film in which the same week that he won a Gaudí Award for his career

He stands out as one of the finest actors of his generation, on screen and stage. And he has been awarded plenty of prizes during his career, the most recent being a Gaudí d'Honor prize at the Catalan Film Awards on Sunday 29 January. And the tributes are set to continue, since Josep Maria Pou will also be appearing in a special film session at the Filmoteca at 8pm on Thursday 2 February.

This session will also see the presence of the Filmoteca director Esteve Riambau, who will converse with Pou about his career, defined by the Catalan academy as “half a century’s profession on screen and stage”. The session will be a celebration of his award and an opportunity to see 42nd Street, a film closely linked to his career that was chosen specifically for Pou.

The choreography in 42nd Street was staged by Busby Berkeley for Warner Bros and the film became one of the hits of the 1930s. Its title was appropriated by Pou for a radio programme on musicals, a film genre that he is particularly fond of and which he presented for almost fifteen years alongside Concha Barral.

Additional information is available on the Filmoteca website.
