‘Pantalla Pavelló’ is the film series directly projected on the travertine of the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion that delves into the relationship between the built environment, its limits and its borders, the people who inhabit it, and how this relationship is accentuated and revealed in its maximum expression.
This summer’s program, within the framework of the Spanish Architecture Biennial that hosts the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion, is developed under the same title and theme “España vacía, España llena. Strategies for conciliation ”curated by Ana Bach, Eugeni Bach and Óscar Miguel Ares.
On the second session of this year’s series you will be able to enjoy the film En construcción (Spain, 2000, 125′), by Jose Luis Guerin, winner, among others, of the Goya Award for best documentary film in 2002.
Synopsis. In an emblematic working-class neighbourhood in Barcelona, threatened by a reform plan, the construction of a new dwelling begins. This fact allows us to get to know the intimacy of a construction. In this process, we realise that the mutation of the urban landscape also implies a mutation in the human landscape and that in this movement we can recognise certain echoes of the world.
