‘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.
In the third session of this year’s series, you can enjoy the film El cielo gira (Spain, 2004, 105′), by Mercedes Álvarez, winner of the award for best documentary at the Malaga Festival in 2005.
Synopsis: Located in the most depopulated region in Europe – the province of Soria, where more than 75% of the population is over 75 years old – the village of Aldeaseñor today has 14 inhabitants, the youngest, aged 48, and the oldest, an old woman who was born in 1900. They are the last generation, after an uninterrupted history of more than eight centuries. Nothing will rectify the fall of time in this world turned in on itself. Today, life goes on. In a short time, it will be extinguished without a sound and without further witnesses. For the visitor, this landscape of moors remains strangely intact and virginal, without a trace or sign of the changing times. This world is part of the personal and artistic interests of a painter, Pello Azketa, 48, who arrives in the village with his wife, with the intention of renting a house and spending a short time there.
