Part of the film series PANTALLA PAVELLÓ curated by Celia Marín & Daniele Porretta. Pont de Varsòvia, a film by Pere Portabella (V.O. subtitled in english).
Presented by Pere Portabella Pont de Varsòvia is dated 1989, the year of the fall of the Berlin Wall. If the predominant look in Nocturn 29 was that of the upper classes in the sixties, in Pont de Varsòvia we have shining images of the new intellectuals and the amnesic, progressive, European political classes. But beneath that sparking surface of spectacular socio-cultural events and the frivolous life in a happy Europe, lies the tension of broken memories and personal and historical cataclysms. Filmed as meticulously as contemporary comercial cinema,Pont de Varsòvia shatters the plot into a thousand fragments in a European landscape broken by the return of History. It is therefore not strange that two years later Godard should be the author of a sibling lm, Germany Year 90 Nine Zero explicitly the heir to Rossellini’s Germany Year Zero in 1947 post-war Europe.
