The Filmoteca de Cataluña, which is an oasis full of surprises for lovers of film-related products, is starting a click specializing in animation films for adults that will show cult films that will go from “Persepolis” by Marjane Strapi to “Island of Dogs” by Wes Anderson.
With the title “Immortal Illusions: animation for adults” the cycle will feature historical films in the genre, directed by creators of the stature of Jan Svankmajer, Bill Plyton or the Quay brothers, offering a great menu of choices and styles for attendees.
Projections began last Tuesday, December 3 and the starting flag was given by the feature film “The Canvas” by Jean Grançois Laguionie, a 2011 production internationally awarded and considered by critics as a work of art. In addition, films such as Makoto Shinkai’s “Your Name”, Patrice Leconte’s “La tienda de los suicidas”, Bill Plympton’s “I married a strange person”, Jimmy Murakami’s “When the wind blows” and Wrinkles, an award-winning 2011 Goya film directed by Paco Roca, will also be shown.
Although perhaps the most anticipated screening by fans of adult animated classics is “Yellow Submarine,” The Beatles’ mythical film that represents a journey through pop culture, psychedelia and pacifism. A unique opportunity to see the Liverpool Quartet on the big screen.
The sessions will last the whole month of December and tickets cost only 4 euros. For more information > filmoteca.cat
