|2021 EDITION / PUNTO DE VISTA LABS / THE LETTERS THAT WEREN'T AND ALSO ARE|
Garbiñe Ortega, Artistic Director of Punto de Vista, came up with the idea of creating a collective audiovisual project in which several filmmakers would make a filmed letter addressed to another filmmaker they did not know personally and who was as far as possible from their own cinema. This is how 'Las cartas que no fueron también son' was born.
Beatrice Gibson, Nicolás Pereda, Deborah Stratman, Lynne Sachs, Raya Martin, Jessica Sarah Rinland, Alejo Moguillansky and Diana Toucedo make this collection of ten short films that find a new dimension when shown together. Their filmed letters are addressed to people as diverse as Jean Vigo, Wes Craven, Chantal Akerman, Chick Strand or Michelangelo Antonioni, among others. The result is an exciting journey through their affinities, their admiration and their creative processes.
