It did not seem obvious 16 years ago that in Barcelona there was a chance for a festival of these characteristics. But they had to hang the poster of “sold out” on several occasions. Little by little, it became an unmissable event and a seal of quality. Currently many documentalists work on their projects with the aim of premiering in In-Edit. Something that fills with pride Cristian Pascual, its director, who belongs to a generation that grew up watching “Sputnik”, the musical space of the most creative and groundbreaking time of TV3 [Catalan public television].
For 11 days, In-Edit offers more than 50 titles that can be seen at the Aribau cinema, CCCB, Etnia Barcelona, civic centers and libraries, as well as the Inedit TV and Filmin platforms, and some passes on Canal 33 [Cultural chanel of de Catalan Public Television] and Betevé [Barcelona’s public television].
Among the wide and diverse programming there is a generous sample of local production that gives clues about the vitality of the genre. Here are some titles:
- “Apolo. La juventud baila” is a docufiction that takes advantage of the 75th anniversary of the mythical discotheque in Barcelona to compose an ironic generational chronicle, directed by Marc Crehuet.
- “Andrea Motis: la trompeta silenciosa” is a warm-hearted portrait of the acclaimed jazz trumpeter, saxophonist and jazz singer Andrea Motis, by Ramon Tort, director with extensive experience in this subject.
- “Els ulls s’aturen de créixer”, by Mallorcan Javier García Lerín, is a peculiar and emotional portrait of singer-songwriter Miquel Serra.
- “O espírito de Pucho Boedo” is the latest work of the award-winning and experimental Galician documentary filmmaker Lois Patiño. In this case he places his camera in a seventies style villa in which the punk trio Novedades Carminha tries to find the most danceable and tropical sound of his career.
- “Yo soy la rumba” is the portrait and tribute to Pere Pubill Calaf, “Peret”, undisputed king of the Catalan rumba, by the director Paloma Zapata.
