The Filmoteca de Catalunya’s film cycle continues until March with films like ‘High Life’ and ‘Roma’.
The Best Film cycle, ‘Els millors films de l’any’, at the Filmoteca de Catalunya started in February. Last year’s edition drew over 5,700 spectators and if you weren’t among them, then perhaps the programme for March will entice you to go. ‘High Life’ by Claire Denis will be shown on Sunday, 1 March at 4.30 pm. A science fiction film with a very personal style, starring Robert Pattinson and Juliette Binoche. On 4 March spectators will have the opportunity to watch ‘Ahlat Agaci’ (The Wild Pear Tree) by the Turkish director, Nuri Bilge Ceylan, who explores family and generational relationships through a writer’s emotional journeys when he returns to his village after finishing his university studies.
On 7 and 8 March you’ll be able to watch ‘A portuguesa’ (The Portuguese Woman) by Rita Azevedo Gomes, a film adaptation of a painting by Vermeer, and on 10 and 17 March, ‘An Elephant Sitting Still’ will be screened. In this film, the Chinese film writer and director, Hu Bo, speaks of the four protagonists’ existential despair. The programme for March ends with ‘Roma’ by Alfonso Cuarón, which you will be able to see over the weekend of 28 and 29 March. ‘Roma’ won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film and a further 237 accolades, making it the film to win the highest number of awards in history.
Tickets cost €4.00 and you can purchase them online until an hour before the film starts. You’ll find the link for buying them next to each session.
