The Seminar will have a special closing event: Snow Movies, Perspectives on Filming through the Cold
The Punto de Vista Seminar 2014 (Pamplona, 19th – 22nd February) is going to close with a special event which will be held on Saturday 22nd February at 8 pm at the SAIDE Carlos III Cinema in the centre of Pamplona. It is an event that is aimed not only at film-goers, but also at literature and art enthusiasts in general, as it will be presented by the novelist, poet and translator Menchu Gutiérrez, author of the brilliant essay, Decir la Nieve (Saying Snow).
Menchu Gutiérrez, Snow Guide
Heading the Snow Movies session, in which we will screen four films related and devoted to snow, we have invited one of the best Sherpas in the world of creation and the weather: Menchu Gutiérrez, expert writer on the theme of storms, fog and snow, who will accompany us on a white journey from Japan to Siberia in this special session that will close the seminar. Menchu has lived in the Igeldo lighthouse and has now retired to the mountains of Cantabria. She knows first-hand the confines and has written a beautiful and profound text for this year’s book: Fifty Centimetres of Snow. She tells us that: “Snow is the sheet of paper, the cinema screen, the first book laid out on the floor in which our prints are inscribed”.
A great conversationalist
Eduardo Coutinho came to Pamplona from Rio in February 2013 for a retrospective organised by Punto de Vista Film Festival. He was 80. Despite the risk that, at his age, he might refuse to deliver a talk after the screening of his films, we planned several presentations, lectures and even a morning meeting with film students. Coutinho also attended a meeting with the press along with German filmmaker Thomas Heise, who was also the subject of a retrospective, and held an interview for the Festival’s media library.

A special book for Punto de Vista Collection
At Punto de Vista, we are aware of the current times, but we also try to create a space for the history of cinema with a transversal look. In a bid for reflection, we use the screen and paper and therefore, since its outset, the festival has edited monographic publications - under the name of Punto de Vista Collection - with the filmmakers, currents, countries or trends we think should be looked at in more detail. Along this line and to celebrate the “The Frozen Image” film seminar, we are also preparing a paper version, a special book that will help to gain a better understanding of the films by our guest filmmakers, Ignacio Agüero and Pema Tseden, and the proposal to hold an event around the frozen image.
