After the Pompidou Centre gave Albert Serra (°1975) “carte blanche” to prepare his own retrospective in April 2013 it is now the turn of BOZAR CINEMA and CINEMATEK to extend an invitation to this Catalan filmmaker. Hardly coincidental, given that BOZAR is dedicating a special exhibition to Francisco de Zurbaran (1598 - 1664) in the same period. Serra is a remarkable figure in the world of modern cinema and has proven himself, after only a few films, to be an artist of promise and interest. He makes frequent reference to history and tradition. The mysticism of the Spanish landscape and everyday things play an essential role in his work. This is heightened by the slow pace and reflective tone of his films, which are often stripped of dialogue and fuelled by the power of the imagery. See the programme for this unique filmmaker.
