VOUS ÊTES LA BANDE VIGO !
The eleventh edition of Punto de Vista will kick off on 6th March with the sad news of the recent death of Luce Vigo in the retina. The daughter of the great filmmaker Jean Vigo, who gave the festival its name based on his concept of the “documented point of view”, has been the godmother of Punto de Vista since its birth in 2005. The news has been received with much sorrow by the festival in a week in which Luce Vigo continued active, working with the Navarra festival from Paris. Ana Herrera, the current Minister for Culture of Navarra and executive director of Punto de Vista until two editions ago, remembers her “as a strong, resilient, affectionate and loyal person; who gave us her friendship and support from the very first edition and gave us the best gift of all”.
In memory of her, the festival will devote the eleventh edition to Luce Vigo and will programme a tribute session with two films: L´Atalante, the legendary film by Jean Vigo and Crossing Paths with Luce Vigo, a portrait filmed by Jem Cohen during one of Luce’s visits to Pamplona.
