What did the Fall of the Berlin Wall represent?

Contemporary thinkers give their views on walls old and new

The debate “1989. Europe, 20 Years after the Fall of the Wall” brings together at the CCCB writers, philosophers and journalists, people who have some kind of link with that historical event that transformed Europe. We ask them how the world changed after the night of 9 November 1989, and if dreams of a freer, less divided continent really came true. Twenty years on, we also want to know which other borders or dividing lines, visible or invisible, affect humankind with the same force as the Berlin Wall.

The CCCB’s film programme is setting out to travel the world with a cycle of Spanish experimental films

“From Ecstasy to Rapture. 50 Years of Alternative Spanish Film” is the title of the programme of Spanish experimental film going on show as of October in cities such as Melbourne, New York, Washington, Miami, Tokyo, Madrid and London. It offers a retrospective of the experimental film made in Spain between the 1950s and the present day. “From Ecstasy to Rapture …” is the brainchild of Xcentric, the regular film programme at the Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona.

Thanks to the joint work of the CCCB and the Sociedad Estatal para la Acción Cultural Exterior (SEACEX), foremost international museums and arts centres will be screening the works of filmmakers such as José Val del Omar, Joaquim Puigvert, Eugenio Granell, David Domingo, Oriol Sánchez, Laida Lertxudi, Carles Santos, Javier Aguirre, Eugeni Bonet, José Antonio Sistiaga and Iván Zulueta.

Antoni Pinent,  comissari del programa i Rosa  Cardona, conservadora de la Filmoteca de  Catalunya, repassen les còpies  de les pel•lícules abans d'enviar-les a  Melbourne, primera ciutat on es  projectarà el cicle.

Antoni Pinent, the curator of the programme and Rosa Cardona, curator of the Filmoteca de Catalunya, check the copies of the films before sending them to Melbourne.

Antoni Pinent, the curator of “From Ecstasy to Rapture…”, has chosen 43 titles from over 1000, a careful selection of the last 50 years of art-house film and creation. Some works have received little or no projection, and have now been loaned by film libraries or the directors themselves. Xcentric is setting off round the world to showcase some of Spain’s little-known film heritage.
