Cinematic Correspondences
From One Director to Another

October 17 - 31, 2014

Pera Film’s October program Cinematic Correspondences: From One Director to Another entails five cinematic letter exchanges that were produced between 2005 and 2011, each of them between a Hispanic filmmaker and a geographically far-flung international colleague. The five pairs are made up of various renowned representatives of contemporary filmmakers: José Luis Guerín (Barcelona) and Jonas Mekas (New York), Isaki Lacuesta (Girona) and Naomi Kawase (Nara), Albert Serra (Banyoles) and Lisandro Alonso (Buenos Aires), Jaime Rosales (Madrid) and Wang Bing (Shaanxi), Fernando Eimbcke (Mexico City) and So Yong Kim (Pusan/New York). This program was initiated by the Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona and resulted in a series of essay films that gathers together the diversity of different cinematographic signatures present in today’s cinema.

As part of this program director Albert Serra will be in conversation. Born in 1975 Catalan director Albert Serra had two of his previous films Honor of the Knights (2006) and Birdsong (2008) screened at Cannes Film Festival.
