Linda Ehrlich previews a forthcoming major exhibition based on ‘video-letter’ exchanges between directors such as Jonas Mekas, José Luís Guerin, Alberto Serra, Lisandro Alonso, and others.
A Buñuel Scrapbook: The Last Script: Remembering Luis Buñuel (1) and Calanda: 40 Years Later
Designed as a loosely chronological “scrapbook” marking the 25th anniversary of Luis Buñuel’s death in Mexico City, El Último guión: Buñuel en la memoria is a chat between Juan Luis Buñuel and Jean-Claude Carrière about the great director’s life and work. Linda C. Ehrlich finds it a fascinating and accurate portrait of a man of vision.
In this diary-essay, Linda Ehrlich offers some engaging impressions on three impressive films from Spain: El Cielo gira (2004), La Leyenda del tiempo (2006) and Unas Fotos … en la ciudad de Sylvia (2007).
Review of the recent exhibition inspired by the correspondences between these two great filmmakers that featured in Barcelona, subsequently in Madrid and destined for Paris in 2007.
