Today, Barcelona is one of Europe’s most important centres for the study and production of Creative Documentary or “Documental de Creacion”. Directly influenced by the avant-garde filmmakers from the Escola de Barcelona (School of Barcelona), a new generation has claimed its place and their work sweeps international festival competitions. Backed by renowned teachers like Joaquim Jordá and José Luis Guerín, schools like the University Pompeu Fabra (UPf) or Universidad Autonoma de Barcelona (UaB) are important incubators of documentary film talent.
Nanouk Films have played a central role on that new generation, producing some of the most remarkable works coming out of those schools, going straight to festials like Visions du Reel, IFFR or Locarno Film Festival. Salvador Sunyer will discuss the role of Nanouk Films in this new wave of creative documentariey films in Spain, delivering a masterclass organised by CinemaAttic and ourselves at Edinburgh College of Art.
This masterclass is part of Homage to Catalonia (27 SEPT – 1 OCT), a week long celebration of Catalan Films in Scotland, organised by CinemaAttic. Check out the eclectic line up including poetry recitals, short film nights, pop up screenings, panel discussions, parties and more HERE!
This Masterclass is FREE but ticketed, please secure your space by confirming your attendance.
