Talk with Arturo Ripstein

Instituto Cervantes in Dublín has the pleasure to show the film “Deep Crimson” from director Arturo Ripstein and Paz Alicia Garciadiego (scriptwriter). They will present the film and after the screening, we will have the opportunity to chat with them.

From a true story that had already been taken to the screen –The Honeymoon Killers (1970), a B movie and Truffaut favorite- in the hands of Arturo Ripstein and relocated in Mexico, it has become his masterpiece and won him the international acclaim he long deserved.
The film merges a cruel world, humanized monsters and a black humor that shows up when least expected.
Arturo Ripstein, born in Mexico City in 1943, is the son of a well-known producer. He studied law, history and art history before plunging into a film career in 1962, as an assistant to Luis Buñuel.
In 1965, he directed his first feature, Tiempo de Morir, written by Carlos Fuentes and Gabriel García Márquez, it began a tradition of making independent films written by high-profile Latin-American authors.
In 1997, Ripstein won the National Prize of Arts and Sciences, the second filmmaker after Buñuel to do so.
Paz Alicia Garciadiego is the scriptwriter of many of his films.

He also participated in the soundtrack for the movie “Habana Blues” by Benito Zambrano (Goya Award for the best soundtrack).

In 2007 he moved to Barcelona to complete his album. In the last two years he has performed in the major jazz, world music and Latin music festivals in Europe. His music is based on the research into the roots of Cuban music and its African cultural heritage.

    Transcultural: the cinema of encounter

    El 19 de October de 2010 en Cultural Activities, Spanish Cinema por | Sin comentarios

    film series at IC Dublin

    The contemporary documentary cycle “Transcultural: through the eyes of others” brings together a series of films which tackle the migratory convergence taking place in today’s Spain.

    The four documentaries in this selection have been made by independent production companies, and each one visibly attempts to a give new perspective on the meeting of cultures, highlighting both problems and solutions.

    The common thread in these productions is the need to discuss issues which are right up to the minute, and to shed light on the tensions and assimilations inherent in the collision of cultures.

    The documentaries in this cycle propose answers to the age-old problem of identity, and, in clear terms, set out to lay the foundations for a better future in which we can all integrate through dialogue.
