“Metamorphosis”, as explained by Albert Serra

The director of films such as “Birdsong” and “Story of My Death” will offer a guided tour of the current CCCB exhibition on the 19th of June

Up until September, the CCCB is hosting one of the most significant and acclaimed exhibitions of the season, Metamorphosis, based on the experimental animated film of three renowned creators, Russian film maker Ladislas Starewich, who died in 1965, Czech film maker Jan Švankmajer, and the Quay brothers, British film makers born in the USA.

Among the parallel activities programmed by the culture centre to accompany the exhibition, of particular note is the guided tour to be given by film maker Albert Serra at 7.30 pm on the 19th of June. Serra is the author of some of the key works of new Catalonian cinema such as Cavalry Honour, Birdsong, which won three Gaudí Awards, and Story of My Death, winner of the Best Film Award at the latest edition of the prestigious Locarno Film Festival. In the film, Serra imagines a fantastical meeting between Casanova and Dracula.

In this case the fantastical elements of Serra’s film (almost all his works play with the transformation and adaptation of literary classics or historical characters, real or fictional) blend perfectly with the essence of the exhibition, and Serra himself will be only too willing to provide his own particular vision and interpretation of the works of the four masters of animation and the various other elements that constitute the exhibition.

Tickets for the guided tour on the 19th of June beginning at 7.30 pm cost 8€, though a number of discounts are offered by the CCCB. More information here.
