"Expression in Times of Repression" Documentary Film Screening & Panel of Renowned Spanish Filmmakers at NYU, Oct. 20

October 2, 2007
N-81, 2007-08

In Spain, during Franco’s regime, films that realistically depicted life the way it was in that country were heavily censored. Forty-seven years ago the “Conversaciones de Salamanca” tried to open the way for social realism in Spanish cinema.

On Saturday, October 20, at 2 p.m., New York University’s King Juan Carlos I of Spain Center (53 Washington Square South) will host a screening of the documentary De Salamanca a ninguna parte (2002, 81 min., in Spanish, with English subtitles), which focuses on the work and legacy of those behind the declarations at the Conversaciones. The screening will be presented by curator Marta Sánchez and will be followed by a panel of renowned Spanish filmmakers: Basilio Martín Patino, Jaime de Armiñán, Chema de la Peña (who made the documentary), and Fernando Lara, director of Spain’s Instituto de la Cinematografía y de las Artes Audiovisuales (ICAA). The discussion will be moderated by Richard Peña, director of the Film Society of Lincoln Center. Simultaneous English translation for the panel will be provided.

This special event is sponsored exclusively by The Regional Government of Castile and Leon, Spain.

The screening and panel are free and open to the public. For more information, call 212.998.3650 or visit www.nyu.edu/kjc.

This event is held in conjunction with the film series entitled “Spain (Un)Censored”, which will be screened at MoMA between October 17 and November 5, 2007. For more information, visit www.moma.org or www.pragda.com.
