Catalan Avant-Garde

28 Feb 201518 Dec 2015

The culture of Catalonia is one of the oldest in Europe. Geographically small and surrounded by the high profile cultures of France and Spain, it has managed to maintain its idiosyncrasy and ambition of scope and vision.  

A substantial part of Catalan cultural output has always been in the vanguard of artistic movements, without making concessions to commercial demands - Joan Miró, Salvador Dalí, Antoni Gaudí, Pere Portabella and Xavier Montsalvatge come immediately to mind. Brought to you by the ICA, the Institut Ramon Llull and Reel Solutions, this season of films highlights the daring and innovative approach by many of the new generation of Catalan filmmakers: original, different, artistic and yet extremely engaging. We invite you to discover the fascinating physical and intellectual landscapes of Catalan cinema. 

The Institut Ramon Llull is a public entity funded by the Catalan Government and the Barcelona City Council with the primary aim of promoting Catalan language and culture abroad. In addition to its Barcelona headquarters, the IRL has four offices abroad in the cities of London, New York, Paris and Berlin. 

Reel Solutions is an independent film programming consultancy with a passion for arthouse cinema. It brings the best of both contemporary and archive films to cinema screens and it works for cinemas and festivals to provide audiences with a diverse choice of films.
