“Això de ‘tradició i modernitat’, com ho veus? És una discussió que crec que avui en dia ja no hauria d’existir. Ni tan sols crec que siga una discussió. Crec que hem d’estar en constant evolució, veig que ara hi ha nous moviments i hi ha compositors que utilitzen instruments tradicionals amb una altra mentalitat. Això no ha de ser cap problema, sinó que ha de ser assumit per tothom.”

    VAMPIR

    Pere Portabella Spain, 1971

    Pere Portabella—master of the avant-garde, politician, and all-around renaissance man, made this mysterious film; which follows Christopher Lee. Shot on the fly in between scenes in the crevices of another films shoot, Vampir is an evocative investigation into narrative, myth, and Spanish cinema.

    WARSAW BRIDGE

    Pere Portabella Spain, 1989

    An enigmatic work from one of our favorite filmmakers, Pere Portabella, Warsaw Bridge is both a drama of a love triangle and a study of collective memory. Released the year of the fall of the Berlin wall, this fractured, sophisticated artefact remains a pertinent meditation on the state of Europe.

    UMBRACLE

    Pere Portabella Spain, 1972

    Experimental Catalan director Pere Portabella is highly praised—vividly by Jonathan Rosenbaum—yet under-known, and it’s films like this poetic, fragmentary attack on Franco’s “official Spain” which make him essential. An avant-garde firebomb starring, believe it or not, Christopher Lee!

    GENERAL REPORT

    Pere Portabella Spain, 1977

    The lucid, radical work of Pere Portabella creates an invaluable space for rethinking reality, fiction and the political dimension of both. With this monumental landmark of activist cinema, the filmmaker dissects a crucial moment in Spain’s history: its transition from dictatorship to democracy.
