Forthcoming: The Silence Before Bach / Mudanza

#1 Post by criterionsnob » Tue Mar 23, 2021 4:21 pm

Coming Soon, according to Second Run's site:
The Silence Before Bach
(Die Stille vor Bach) / Mudanza
Two films by Pere Portabella
Spain, 2007 / 2008

Second Run are delighted to present two works by the radical Catalan filmmaker Pere Portabella.

The acclaimed, surreal documentary The Silence Before Bach comprises a series of filmed vignettes, united by the music of Johann Sebastian Bach. Investigating the profound relationship between image and music, Portabella's opulent reverie leads us through the centuries led by the hand of J. S. Bach.

Mudanza records the removal of furniture and objects from the home and museum of the García-Lorca family in Granada, leaving visitors able to move freely amongst its empty spaces. Portabella's film makes poet Federico García Lorca’s emotive and historic absence ever more powerful, evident and heartfelt.

Very cool, and I wonder how much further they intend to go with Portabella. I hope they get to Warsaw Bridge at some point.

It's a shame they didn't go with Warsaw Bridge or Umbracle, but I can hardly complain as it's just great to see Second Run putting out more Portabella.

Edit: Oh ok I was initially confused about Mudanza. I have the French Boxed Set so the title shows is translated to Déménagement (which is a 20 min short film)
