There is another cinema in Spain. There is and there has always been one. Heterodocsias is the section dedicated to the heterodox films produced in Spain. It is a space open to both memory and experimentation, to innovation and history. In the Festival's sixth edition, Heterodocsias grew stronger and was split into two sub-sections capturing its original spirit: a look back to the past and a look into the future.
This side of Heterodocsias focuses on films lost, ignored, or forgotten. Punto de Vista wants to keep track of this kind of border film, made by snipers who have seldom found a place in official histories.
In two sessions under the general title Amateur Film Under the Influence, the section that probes the depths of the least orthodox, sometimes forgotten, Spanish film is to focus on Spanish amateur films of the 1930s-1950s –films shot under the wing of avant-garde and neo-realism. Moreover, the avant-garde session will feature the live music of Mursego, the solo project of multi-instrument player Maite Arroitajauregi.
