The new wave of Catalan cinema: Coming of age
14 March @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pmFREE
The Centre for Catalan Studies at the Queen Mary University of London presents the second event of its film season “The new Contemporary Catalan Cinema”, an evening to explore coming of age narratives with two of the most exciting young filmmakers hailing from Barcelona: Elena Martin and Belen Funes.
The event will take place at the Film and Drama Studio (FADS) situated on the first of the Arts 2 building in the Mile End Campus, and has step-free access.
Júlia Ist & The Hopeless
The intimate looks crafted in Júlia Ist (Elena Martin, 2017) and La inútil (Belén Funes, 2018) push the boundaries and go beyond the notion of a strictly Catalan cinema to map out experiences that are central to contemporary woman selfhood.
Catalonia has recently become the hub for the new tendency in cinema to flourish- a serendipity which the media has termed as the Catalan New Wave.
In an era when the Time’s Up movement is jolting the traditionally male-dominated Hollywood, the Catalan film industry celebrated an awards gala that was one of its most gender-balanced ever, with an overdue acknowledgement of female nominees and winners.
Directors Elena Martín and Belén Funes will be in attendance and they will join us for a post-screening symposium/discussion.
Followed by drinks
Supported by Institut Ramon Llull
