August is a month of free films on the Pati de les Dones at Barcelona’s Contemporary Culture Centre (CCCB) will fill up with deckchairs (gandules) for Gandules 08.
Intercultural is the title of this year’s programme of films, where the common themes are moving to another culture and different cultures co-existing in the same space. Now a well-established event, it offers films every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Admission is free but space is limited.
The programme kicks off on 5 August with the short If The Camera Blows Up, by Óscar Pérez, in which a Pakistani records everyday events with a camera so he can send the tape to his family.
You can also see Italianamerican, by Martin Scorsese, in which the director produces a portrait of his parents, Italian immigrants in New York. The pick of the programme includes Ali, Fear Eats the Soul, by Rainer W. Fassbinder.
Unless otherwise stated, all films will be shown in their original language, with Spanish subtitles. Some may suffer a little from poor quality due to their age.
