This month, the Filmoteca de Catalunya is dedicating a cycle to the cinema of one of the leading directors of American independent cinema.
‘John Cassavetes: faces and shadows’ is the title of the retrospective that the Filmoteca de Catalunya dedicates to the American director during January. Cassavetes, one of the leading figures in North American auteur cinema, made his debut in 1959 with Shadows and, since then, he continued to expand his filmography, always with the desire to tear the masks off his imperfect characters and a little ridiculous, to show their rawest emotions and annoy the viewer.
Shadows is precisely the film chosen as the presentation of the cycle and you can see it on Thursday 7 January. Until January 31, you can see the other works selected for the cycle: Faces, Husbands, Minnie and Moskowitz, The Killing of a Chinese Bookie, Opening Night, A Woman under the Influence, Gloria, Love Streams and Big Trouble. In addition, the retrospective includes some of his best work as an actor, such as Roman Polansky’s Rosemary’s Baby or Brian de Palma’s The Fury.
Tickets for each session are 4 euros and can be purchased either by clicking on each title or at this link, where you can choose the session within the activity ‘John Cassavetes’. You will find all the information on the cycle on the Filmoteca website.
