YOUNG FILMMAKERS REDISCOVERED
With the name of Young Filmmakers Rediscovered, a pioneering experience in teaching with cameras with young immigrants on the Lower East Side of New York in the late 60's and early 70's, will be presented for the first time in Spain by Punto de Vista. Seven short films that, while documenting the cultural activity of New York at the time, reflect very clearly the film talent of young amateur filmmakers whose films, although not very well known, were presented at the New York Film Festival in 1968 and even at Cannes. The screening of these shorts will be introduced by Michael Jacobsohn, one of the young directors back then who has continued making films as a successful documentary filmmaker and editor, and Gabe Klinger, curator of the programme, critic and teacher.
