‘Per Amor a les Arts’ in La Filmoteca

The Fundació Mies van der Rohe collaborates by choosing two films to be part of “Per Amor a les Arts” cinema series program, organized by Filmoteca de Catalunya and Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya (MNAC), with the aim of disseminating the architecture to new audiences.

All the artistic disciplines are represented in the cycle, which also counts with the proposals of other important cultural institutions in the city such as L’Auditori, Gran Teatre del Liceu, Institució de les Lletres Catalanes, Mercat de les Flors, Palau de la Música, Biblioteques Públiques de Catalunya, Teatre Lliure, Teatre Nacional de Catalunya, Fundació Joan Miró, Foment de les Arts i del Disseny, Museu del Disseny de Barcelona.


In this edition our selection is:


Self-Portrait: Fairy Tale in 47km  109′
Zhang Mengqi, 2021

When the Xinese filmmaker decides to build a house on top of a peat bog, she invites a group of girls from the village to imagine this space and to film the process with her. A cinema made of everyday life and a radically democratic approach to creation.



The Grand Budapest Hotel  99′
Wes Anderson, 2014

The splendid building of the Grand Budapest Hotel is the star of this film inspired by Stefan Zweig’s literary universe. A visually seductive, artificial and comic story, as usual in Wes Anderson’s work, set in Europe between wars.
