Cinéspectacle: Aida (Liceu)

Duration: Approximately 4h
Music: Giuseppe Verdi
Musical direction: Gustavo Gimeno
Directed by: Thomas Guthrie
Decors: Josep Mestres Cabanes
The King: Mariano Buccino
Amneris: Clémentine Margaine or Judit Kutasi
Aida: Angela Meade or Jennifer Rowley

In the dramatic opera Aïda, composed at the age of 58, Verdi presents with his musical and theatrical know-how a love triangle that brings Aïda, Amneris and Radamès to live their passion, their love and their hatred to the end. The work, which marks the opening of the Suez Canal, is set against the backdrop of ancient Egypt and serves as a pretext for offering a grandiose choir and symphonic scenes with superb arias throughout the score.

For her debut at the prestigious Catalan theatre, Angela Meade will inhabit the now mythical sets of the Manrésan scenographer Josep Mestres Cabanes. Seventy-five years later, admired by four generations of music lovers, this colossal production is still able to excite the public.

Louve d'Or at the 2019 FNC

In 1945 Leningrad, reduced to rubble by the Second World War, a young woman, Iya, works in a hospital tending to soldiers wounded in battle. Tragedy strikes when her friend Masha returns from the front. Through an austere yet intimate lens – no surprise given his first film Closeness – Kantemir Balagov tackles the postwar fallout with fascinating historical exactitude. The 28-year-old filmmaker’s devastating second feature is brutal and provocative, both a well-handled study of female friendship and an unforgettable cinematic experience

Corpus Christi (STA)
Showing with French or English subtitles.

After spending years in a Warsaw prison for a violent crime, 20-year-old Daniel is released and sent to a remote village to work as a manual laborer. The job is designed to keep the ex-con busy, but Daniel has a higher calling. Over the course of his incarceration he has found Christ, and aspires to join the clergy - but his criminal record means no seminary will accept him. When Daniel arrives in town, one quick lie allows him to be mistaken for the town’s new priest, and he sets about leading his newfound flock. Though he has no training, his passion and charisma inspire the community. At the same time, his unconventional sermons and unpriestly behavior raise suspicions among some of the townsfolk - even more so as he edges towards a dark secret that the community hasn't revealed in the confessional booth.

Aznavour, le regard de Charles
In 1948, ‪Edith Piaf‬ offered a Paillard-Bolex camera to ‪Charles Aznavour‬, the first he was to own and which would always be with him. Until 1982, Charles would shot hours and hours of material which would become the corpus of his film diary. Aznavour filmed his life and lived like he filmed. Everywhere he went, his camera was with him. It recorded everything. Moments of life, the places he passed through, his friends, loves, hassles. A few months before he died, he started working through the rushes of his films with Marc di Domenico. He then decided to make a film out of them, his film.

This Is Not a Movie (STF)
For nearly 40 years, Robert Fisk has been one of the most important reporters of Middle East conflicts. He has an uncompromising ethical sense, which led him to leave the Times for the Independent in the 1980s to avoid having to submit to political pressure. Fisk tirelessly continues to venture into conflict zones in search of stories that capture the complexities of the situation on the ground. Looking back on Fisk’s career from the beginning, when he was a reporter of the troubles in Ireland, Yung Chang lets Fisk do the talking as he follows him in his work and questions him about his vision of journalism and his views of the world today. Both humble and meticulous, the reporter delivers an invaluable lesson in history and journalism.
