Details

CORRESPONDENCE(S) brings together filmed exchanges of letters between five pairs of key filmmakers in contemporary cinema. These correspondences has created a new filmic genre: an experimental format for communication between makers who, despite being in geographically distant territories, are united by the desire to share ideas and thoughts about that which motivates their work and life. The pairs of filmmakers who meet in this box are:

Jose Luis Guerin - Jonas Mekas
Isaki Lacuesta - Naomi Kawase
Albert Serra - Lisandro Alonso
Jaime Rosales - Wang Bing
Fernando Eimbcke - So Yong Kim

The creative relationship between Victor Erice and Abbas Kiarostami on the occasion of the exhibition 'Erice-Kiarostami. Correspondences' at Centro de Cultura Contemporanea de Barcelona (2006) prompted this new film format: the filmed exchange of ideas between two filmmakers. Since then, the CCCB has invited other filmmakers to explore the format in an experience that was titled Cinergies (CCCB, 2008-2009). The exhibition The Complete Letters was shown at CCCB between October 2011 and February 2012.
