Lorca on Film Season, Ciné Lumière at the Institut Français, London on Friday 27th – Tuesday 30th March 2009

This short film season offers both a consideration of the varied ways in which his plays have been envisaged for the screen – from Carlos Saura’s Bodas de sangre / Blood Wedding (1981) to Joaquín Oristrell’s Los abajo firmantes / With George Bush on My Mind (2003) – and explores the fascination that his life, loves and death have held for contemporary filmmakers including Juan Antonio Bardem and Paul Morrison. Ever wondered why Lorca exerts such a powerful hold on the cultural imagination? Well, ‘Lorca on Film’ offers a few answers in a cinematic journey that moves from Granada to Paris and from surrealism to the biopic, in presenting a unique perspective into the life, death and work of one of Spain’s most celebrated writers.
