The Video Essay is a joint project of MUBI and FILMADRID Festival Internacional de Cine. Film analysis and criticism found a completely new and innovative path with the arrival of the video essay, a relatively recent form that already has its own masters and is becoming increasingly popular. The limits of this discipline are constantly expanding; new essayists are finding innovative ways to study the history of cinema working with images. With this non-competitive section of the festival both MUBI and FILMADRID will offer the platform and visibility the video essay deserves. The six selected works will be shown during the dates of FILMADRID (June 7 - 16, 2018) on MUBI’s cinema publication, the Notebook. There will also be a free public screening of the selected works during the festival. The selection was made by the programmers of MUBI and FILMADRID.
Strange, What Love Does
A video essay by Diego Cepeda, Luis Franze, Claudia Munuera
A dialogue between bodies and emotions in the works of John Cassavetes (Love Streams, 1984) and David Lynch (Inland Empire, 2006). What will they have to say to us, or better yet, what will they have to say to themselves, a body-emotional cinema like Cassavetes' and a mind-emotional cinema like Lynch's?
Un diálogo entre cuerpos y emociones en las obras-río de John Cassavetes (Love Streams, 1984) y David Lynch (Inland Empire, 2006). ¿Qué nos tendrán para decir, o mejor aún, qué tendrán para decirse un cine de cuerpo-emoción como el de Cassavetes y un cine de mente-emoción como el de Lynch?
