Punto de Vista Collection
12 features and 6 shorts films, from 10 different countries, will take part in the Official Section of the 7th edition of the festival, to be held in Pamplona from February 22 to 27, 2011.
Under the curious title Tupi or Not Tupi: Cannibals vs. Vampires, the second cycle presented by Punto de Vista in its 7th edition explores cannibalism in culture and film, a movement that originated in colonial countries revolting against the colonial culture by means of cannibalism rather than rejection, that is, by absorbing, digesting, and processing the culture of the invaders, mixing it with the local culture, and putting victimisation aside to proudly claim a new, necessarily hybrid, identity. The films produced under the spell of this paradoxical impulse is fascinating, contradictory, all-engulfing, and disturbing, as shown by the films to be screened in this cycle.
Hans Hurch will join the other four members of the Punto de Vista 2011 International Jury, namely, filmmakers Ben Russell and Naomi Uman, film curator at the MoMA Josh Siegel and professor Josep Maria Català. The five of them will decide the winners in the Official Selection.
Neo-realist essays on the Catalan countryside, home images of agonies and deaths, and avant-garde experiments make the offer of Heterodocsias Rewind 2011. In two sessions under the general title Amateur Film Under the Influence, the section that probes the depths of the least orthodox, sometimes forgotten, Spanish film is to focus on Spanish amateur films of the 1930s-1950s –films shot under the wing of avant-garde and neo-realism. Although studies of amateur film in Spain do exist, it is still an unexplored field for contemporary audiences. This is why Heterodocsias Rewind is taking it up: to show some of the most valuable specimens to today’s spectators. Moreover, the avant-garde session will feature the live music of Mursego, the solo project of multi-instrument player Maite Arroitajauregi.
After his film Profit Motive and the Whispering Wind (2007) turned him into one of the most important contemporary documentary filmmakers –it was chosen by Time Out as one of the best films of the decade–, John Gianvito is coming to Spain to present his third feature film, Vapor Trail (Clark) . And he will do so in the 7th Punto de Vista, after showing it in other international festivals like BAFICI, Vancouver, or Rotterdam. Vapor Trail (Clark) will thus join the films in The Central Region, the section dedicated to the most daring new documentaries.
