Limite Mario Peixoto (Brazil, 1931, 120 min.)

The only film finished by Mário Peixoto, Limite, is considered one of the most important works in the history of Brazilian cinema. Extremely innovative for its era, it is directly inspired by Soviet cinema, German expressionism and Griffith's classic films, professing a view of film as art. Today, its importance is widely recognised due to its highly innovative approach to language, characterised by a slow, leisurely pace, shots of Brazilian landscapes and its revolutionary camera work, which alternates static stills with vertiginous movements set to classical music.

* First session of the Eskolatik cycle curated by the EQZE students of the 2020-2021 Academic Year

Umbracle: three censorship situations at the San Sebastian Festival (1960-1971)

  • Research project
  • Conference
  • Conversation
  • Screening

This second public event of the Zinemaldia 70 project will feature presentation of the conclusions of the work carried out by the research team based on documents coming from the San Sebastian Festival archive and other collections, many of them hitherto unheard-of. The study cases will focus on three censorship situations: the controversy surrounding the First Film Students Meeting in 1960, the problems suffered by the New American Cinema retrospective programmed in 1968, and the tense edition of 1971, marked by prohibition of the films Canciones para después de una guerra (Basilio Martín Patino, 1971) and Liberxina 90 (Carles Duran, 1970).
