|TRIBUTE TO LUCE VIGO|
Direction: Jem Cohen
As a prelude to this tribute to Luce Vigo, “the guardian angel of Punto de Vista”, to quote Jean-Pierre Rehm, we present this gem that unites two of the most illustrious visitors: Luce Vigo and Jem Cohen. Perhaps what can be highlighted is something that is not usually mentioned in the synopsis: kind-heartedness. It must be mentioned because it is transmitted in the final result and it is doubly noticed when he who is making the portrait and the portrayed look at each other from the heart. One looks, the other speaks. The French visitor walks through her house. The visitor from New York follows her almost arm in arm. In the midddle, Ana Herrera, Executive Director of our festival at that time, leads the discussion in this conversational film recorded in the hills of Pamplona. It starts to rain, time to put on a hood, Luce tells us about her childhood, her father and cinema... the bench where she sits will always be the Luce Vigo bench.
