Punto de Vista has programmed a great retrospective devoted to the French filmmaker, Jean-Daniel Pollet (1936-2004), one of the best-kept secrets in France. The programme, which has been commissioned by the festival’s programmer, Guillermo G. Peydró, offers the images and ideas of his fascinating work of constant critical rewriting and re-reading throughout successive sessions.
MIRA, MI REY
A film made in Pamplona will culminate the X edition of Punto de Vista on Sunday 14th February. Directed by the filmmakers Ainara Vera (originally from Pamplona) and the Russian Victor Kossakovsky, Mira, mi rey (2014) was shot in sequence in the historic heart of Navarre's capital. But far from being constricted to local reality, it is a conceptual piece filled with questions that reflect on the essence and values of an entire country, offering a debate about the function and validity of an institution such as the monarchy in Spain.
