On Thursday the 28th of February, Verdi Park, Barcelona will be showing Ficció, followed by a cinema-forum with the Barcelona-born director
In 2006, Ficció reaffirmed the curious interior world of Cesc Gay, renowned portraitist of human feelings and relationships. The Verdi Park cinema is reviving the director’s fourth film with a free screening, by invitation only, followed by a debate between the Barcelona-born director and the attendant public.
Ficció tells the story of Alex, a shy, introverted film director who is trying to finish the script for his next film. To this end he decides to leave the city and his family for a few days, seeking quiet and inspiration in the Pyrenees. While in the village, he meets Mónica, a violinist who is spending a few days’ holidays in a friend’s house. They fall in love, but are obliged to hide their feelings.
Starring Eduard Fernández, Javier Cámara, Montse Germán and Carme Pla, the film won four Ciutat de Barcelona prizes, Best Film award in the Mar de Plata Festival and the Premi Nacional for cinema, awarded by the Regional Government of Catalonia. His latest film, ‘Una pistola en cada mano’, is still showing in cinemas to great popular and critical acclaim.
