Citizenship and Visuality: Filming Catalonia’s Cultural Landscape

How are other languages and cultures, other than Catalan and Spanish, represented in Catalan documentaries that address cultural diversity in a globalized city such as Barcelona. To what extent can visual production—and in particular documentary film—be a tool of political intervention, what function does it serve and what impact can it have? In a sense, it’s a way of asking how culture, and the arts, can be made socially relevant.

Midnight in Paris: Surrealism at the Crossroads, 1929

When Salvador Dalí & Luis Buñuel’s film Un chien Andalou premiered in the City of Light, Paris was an avant-garde hothouse rife with artistic conflict and friendly rivalry. Midnight in Paris: Surrealism at the Crossroads, 1929 immerses visitors in this particularly rich and vital creative era by examining the works, friendships and clashes of Jean Arp, André Breton, Luis Buñuel, Alexander Calder, Giorgio de Chirico, Salvador Dalí, Max Ernst, Alberto Giacometti, René Magritte, Joan Miró, Francis Picabia, Man Ray, Yves Tanguy and others.

Screening of BRONKO by Isaac Ulam at Film Noir Cinema in Brooklyn

Isaac Ulam's film, which won the Juried Prize at the Arizona Underground Film Festival, is an ascetic vision about a being who detests the dysfunctional social model that this society proposes and opts for the way of self-destruction. Loneliness, addiction, survival, human sacrifice and a strong ideological component, turn "Bronko" into the symbol of the new contemporary redeemer.

Apply now for Faber Residency: QLGBTI+ Present and Future

Different kinds of revolution involving social, cultural, economic, ecological and personal identity question and challenge us. These changes must be accompanied by mechanisms that ensure respect for the human rights of each individual, including individual rights of queer, bisexual, transgender and intersex persons. These changes, however, will not occur without representation and active presence in all fields, especially in those of knowledge and exchange of experiences and projects, which is what concerns us at Faber.
