Contactos opens cinema up to the other artistic disciplines and knowledge-related activities we call science. This is especially relevant when thinking about documentary cinema, which by definition is oriented towards reflection and knowledge, and shares an interest in investigating reality with the other contemporary arts. The section takes its name from one of the most radical and overwhelming films in the history of Spanish cinema, Contactos (Paulino Viota, 1970), which was included in the festival’s first Heterodocsias Rewind in 2010.

In collaboration with the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, we will host the world premiere of Aquí no hay nada que comprender, a documentary about the work of Elena Asins (1940-2015), an artist from Madrid who lived for a long time in Azpirotz (Navarra). We will also screen Líneas y puntos (2010), one of the numerous videos that Asins
made with her collaborator, the composer Gorka Alda. The piece has been chosen by Gorka himself for the occasion.
