ADRIFT: Short films
Following on from last year’s Gaze. Play. Dream retrospective on Ibero-American experimental cinema, we are pleased to announce two programmes of experimental short films as part of our bigger view into the non-fiction, new narrative cinema.
This session programmed by La Inesperada Festival brings together four authors from the contemporary film scene who trace, through non-fiction, the intricate connections between family relationships and social traditions. That is to say, they speak to us of love and burdens of the past, of rituals and passions.
If Manel Raga (“Homenatge a Judes”) and Brandán Cerviño (“A comunón da miña prima Andrea”) start from the impact and influence of religion in childhood to show the relationship of children with the adult world through it, Marga Almirall (“Elena Universo”) and Blanca Camell (“Tombent les heures”) question couple relationships, from their sexist pressures to their intensity and volatility. A route through archive cinema, essays and hybrid narratives, with brilli-brilli included.
La Inesperada is a festival born in Barcelona in 2021 focused on non-fiction cinema, co-directed by Núria Giménez Lorang and Miquel Martí Freixas.
