L'Alternativa Hall

Hall Invites

María Cañas

María Cañas aka The Archivist of Seville, is an iconoclastic audiovisual cannibal who devises video frays to explode cliches and to smash genres into smithereens. She spurns distractions, stimulates personal growth and stokes inner fires. Her video collages are exercises in what she calls “trash filmmaking”, remixing and reediting scraps of the infinite debris all around us as she devours everything she finds in her path.

On Thursday 20 María Cañas will give a masterclass on Trash Filmmaking, Video Frays and Laughter Protest from 4 to 7 pm in the Sala Raval at the CCCB. Sign up beforehand.

Tomàs Mallol

Indefatigable collector Tomàs Mallol also made 31 shorts in complete creative freedom outside the industry. A common thread runs through his work: his keen awareness of time and his endeavour to reflect the passage of time and its effects on people and the landscape. A tireless autodidact, he is one of the key figures in amateur Catalan filmmaking. This retrospective is a representative sample of his cinema, a splendid inheritance and heritage to be treasured.
