Xcèntric - Cinema Festival at CCCB

The 9th season of the Xcèntric cinema programme at the CCCB will be kicking off on 3 December with a range of films whose very length prevents them from fitting into conventional programmes. In addition, this season of Xcèntric will embark on an international itinerary taking it to Australia, the United States and Japan.

This new season starts out with the intention of exploring films which, by their very format, especially their length, cannot fit in with cinema or television programmes.

The best example of this is provided by Andy Warhol’s long films. On 6 December you will be able to see Empire, an eight-hour long film in which the pop-art artist depicts New York’s Empire State Building. You can also take part in the multi-screening of Outer and Inner Space, a film conceived for showing on two screens.

At the other extreme, we can find a whole series of works not even a minute long. Xcèntric will be offering a retrospective on films by the Fluxus movement, including pieces by Nam June Paik, Paul Sharits, George Maciunas and Yoko Ono.

The first session of this new season, on 3 December, Film Ist will see the premiere. A Girl and a Gun, a film in process by Gustav Deutsch, made from a montage of other films.
