Heterodocsies. Presentation

Lois PatiñoThe Spanish artist, Isidoro Valcárcel Medina, is the star of the space that Punto de Vista dedicates to the least widespread films of our past. His film, La celosía, will be screened at a special Heterodocsias session and the artist will give a talk on his vision of the film industry and art in general.

La Celosía is a film made in 1972 in which Valcárcel makes a literal transcript of the novel of the same name by Alain Robbe-Grillet, exclusively through the text itself, lasting two hours. The attention to the artist will be completed with the premiere in another special session of the recently completed documentary dedicated to his figure: No escribiré arte con mayúscula, directed by Luis del Tell and Miguel Álvarez Fernández.


Although Heterodocsias gave its name to a section of the festival that included a dual programme (Heterodocsias-rewind and Project X Films) in previous editions, this will be separated from Proyecto X Films, which is now an independent section. With La celosía, Heterodocsias maintains its spirit of rescuing the most heterodox and experimental Spanish documentary film. It is a platform to present the riskiest, unknown and provocative non-fiction filmmakers in Spain, as well as recovering forbidden names or those that have disappeared and take a look at the history of Spanish films from the other side.
